Abstract:

Guillermo Cabrera Infante, recipient of the coveted Cervantes Prize, awarded annually to the best living Spanish language writer, is without a doubt the only Londoner whose heart is in Havana. Off to an early start, he published short stories, became a literary ghost editor, founded a literary journal, co-founded a literary society, and spent time in jail for the use of profanity in a publication, all by the time he was 23 years-old.

Cabrera Infante is the author of the prize-winning novel Tres tristes tigres (1967) [Three Trapped Tigers (1971)], the autobiographical novel La Habana para un Infante difunto (1979) [Infante's Inferno (1984)], several volumes of short stories and essays, including Mea Cuba (1992, 1994), Writes of Passage (1993), Cine o Sardina (1997), Todo esta hecho con espejos (1999), La vencana pineal (1999), and Holy Smoke (1985), a book length essay written in English.

In Assays, Essays, and Other Arts, ten of the author's most prominent critics delve into his life and work, crafting essays on Cabrera Infante as journalist, cineaste, literary critic, and commentator on arts, leisure, and memoirs. This book makes available, for the first time, an extensive bibliography of Cabera Infante's essays, a majority of which have been previously unavailable in North America. Assays, Essays, and Other Arts is an admirable response to Cabrera Infante's essays and film writing and provides a valuable resource for students, scholars, or anyone interested in the work of this modern master.
