The Book of Havana

Edited by Orsola Casagrande

[provisional cover]

This anthology brings together ten stories by Havana-based authors, offering different perspectives on a city that has stood in defiance of much of the rest of the world for decades. Covering everything from the hardships of the ‘Special Period’, to the frustrations of the city’s schizophrenic currency system, and the dispossession felt by so many of its young people (especially among the LGBT community) – these stories take us beyond the intoxicating colours of the tourist-friendly Malecon and Old Town, and into a far more complex and contradictory place; a city that many feel is poised at a watershed in its history, and may be about to change, unalterably.
