Café Nostalgia by Zoé Valdés( Book )
58 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member 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
Te di la vida entera by Zoé Valdés( Book )
78 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in 8 languages and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cuaquita es apenas una adolescente que acaba de llegar a La Habana prerrevolucionaria. A ritmo de son, guaracha y bolero y de la mano de dos sensuales mujeres con quien entablará una sincera amistad, recorre los vericuetos de la noche habanera. Una noche, tras un único beso recivido en el calor del baile, su corazón queda atrapado para siempre. Pero el hombre de sus sueños desaparece sin dejar rastro. Después de ocho años de fiel espera, el reencuentro provoca la más desenfrenada historia de amor. Sin embargo la dicha dura poco, y de nuevo sola, con una hija gruto de la relación y la llegada de una revolución que ha traído el desabastecimiento, la degradación y la miseria, su vida va derivando poco a poco e irremediablement hacia el absurdo."--Page 4 of cover
La nada cotidiana by Zoé Valdés( Book )
96 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 12 languages and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yocandra viene de una isla que quiso construir el paraíso y ahora vive en un purgatorio donde arden los rescoldos de un ideal frustrado. Hija de un revolucionario convencido y náugrafa del matrimonio con un intelectual del régimen, la mujer deambula por las calles de La Habana en busca de comida y consuelo, mientras entrega su dolor a las páginas de un cuaderno. La acompañan en este patético peregrinar la voz de su amiga la Gusana, el triste adiós del Lince y las pretensiones del Nihilista, un cineasta en busca de trabajo. Atrapada en las redes dela Historia con mayúsculas y en los hilos de su propia historia sentimental, Yocandra usa las palabras como arma ante un mundo que la ha condenado a la impotencia y ha ahogado su futuro en las aguas sucias de una retórica trasnochada

Yocandra in the paradise of nada : a novel of Cuba by Zoé Valdés( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Yocandra, the first-person narrator, was born (like Valdés herself) in Havana in 1959. 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

Una tarde a Habanaguana se le cruzó en su trayecto al río un ser extraño. Su cuerpo apenas se distinguía, enfundado como estaba en corazas metálicas. De debajo del casco le salía una melena rubia, y sus ojos eran del color de las esmeraldas. Empuñaba un pincho puntiagudo en la mano, osea, una lanza, y al ver a Habanagua puso cara de haber descubierto a una diosa. Se arrodilló incluso ante ella
