[EAN: 9780571206261], Tweedehands, zeer goed, [SC: 12.56], [PU: Faber and Faber], Fiction|General, The streetwise gutsiness of Bukowski and Miller pervades Cuban poet Guti rr ez's raunchy, symbolic, semi-autobiographical debut novel of life in 1990s Havana. Although the title suggests a triptych, the work more closely resem bles a mosaic of short stories bursting with vivid images of exhilaration, depravity, desire and isolation. Narrator Pedro Juan, middle- aged and fed u p, has rejected his career as a journalist because "I always had to write a s if stupid people were reading me." Resisting the mass exodus from Cuba of August 1994, Pedro Juan now wanders the streets of Havana like a footloose Bacchus, indulging himself with women, marijuana and rum. He survives thro ugh a series of menial jobs. His rooftop apartment in central Havana has a spectacular Caribbean view but is, like all dwellings in the decaying econo my, frequently without water. Pedro Juan is imprisoned more than once for m inor crimes; after one lengthy sentence, he returns home to discover that h is lover has replaced him with another man. He eventually drifts back into the urban maelstrom. Prolific, explicit sex scenes reinforce the plight of the artist, and thus a society, limited to physical pleasures where life of fers no intellectual or creative rewards. "It's been years since I expected anything, anything at all, of women, or of friends, or even of myself, of anyone." Guti rrez's talent lies in creating a macho, self-abusive protagon ist who remains engagingly sympathetic. This searing, no-holds- barred portr ait of modern Cuba, expertly translated by Wimmer into prose strong in the rhythms and vulgar beauty of the city, comes complete with a sexy jacket ph

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Faber & Faber], Neu Neuware, auf Lager, Schnellversand mit dpd - Havanna in den 90er Jahren, eine Stadt am Rande des Abgrunds. Es gibt weder Seife noch Wasser, noch Essen, noch Arbeit, noch Geld. Der Erzähler Pedro Juan, arbeitsloser Journalist Anfang vierzig und Alter Ego des Autors, lebt wie alle vom Nichts: vom Hunger, vom Zeittotschlagen, von Gelegenheitsjobs, die kein Geld einbringen, von Rum, Zigaretten und vom Vögeln. Vor allem von Letzterem. Denn wenn es in Castros Stadt noch etwas im Überfluss gibt, sind es herrliche, schamlose und selbstbewusste Frauen. Pedro Juan Gutierrez beschreibt in bunten Farben die Nachtseite der Revolution. 'Schmutzige Havanna Trilogie' ist ein Roman über das nackte Leben: drastisch, abstoßend und anziehend, und schön - wie der Anblick vom Dachbalkon des Erzählers auf die Uferpromenade des Malecon, wo bröckelnde Häuserzeilen im Abendlicht baden. -, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, [GW: 358g]
