Abstract:

Havana is a sultry town teetering on the edge of modernity, harboring a seedy underside just below its dazzling surface. In Havana, the many faces of this cosmopolitan city, with its decaying colonial grandeur and uncertain future, are gathered into one compelling anthology. From Graham Greene's eerily prescient undercover mission in Our Man in Havana to Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo examining the city as an American playground in The Godfather, and from Fidel Castro on his Cuban childhood to the vivid prose of Cristina Garcia in Dreaming in Cuban, Havana offers a revealing take on a complex metropolis, at once beloved and vilified.
