Café Nostalgia by Zoé Valdés( Book )
47 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 572 libraries worldwide
"Un collage que reúne - a partes desiguales - la recreación de la vida de un grupo de adolescentes en una Cuba de apagones y abortos, nostalgias de exilio, denuncias políticas, fragmentos eróticos y una historia de amor, tan inverosímil y rocambolesca como sólo puedo suceder en la vida real. El estilo mezcla los juegos de palabras a lo Cabrera Infante con diálogos insulsos, que recuerdan las novelas de la España de los 1950s. Lo cubano y lo cotidiano contrastan con ámbitos parisinos y un tímido afán cosmopolita que no acaba de cuajar"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Now a dispirited, outspoken woman living in Cuba, narrator writes of a reality of 'nothing' that contrasts poignantly with that of a gusana friend in Madrid with whom she exchanges letters. This colloquial, idiomatic translation of La nada cotidiana reflects work's humor and word play. Brief but helpful translator's notes"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
