New York: Viking. Unrevised Proof Copy.. Excellent condition, with only very minor signs of shelf wear.. Unrevised Proof Copy. New York, Viking, 1990. 15.5 x 23.5cm. 328 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition, with only very minor signs of shelf wear. This semi-autobiographical tale by an author expelled from Cuba a decade ago takes up where Singing in the Well left off. Fortunato, now an adolescent living in a household of loud and vexatious women, moves with them from the country to the drab and unhistorical city of Holguin, where they set up a sugarcane press, spar with each other in frustration, and stink of rotten fruit. City life, he reasons, will be tough, because cities are what turned his girl cousins into prostitutes. Things get so bad (God is addressed as "you old faggot") that the family tries to forget its private hell by adopting the hell that is "for everyone alike." When Fortunato joins the rebels in 1958, the quality of his life does not improve. Arenas's unconventional narrative impressively combines dialog, mini-plays, advertisements, and newspaper reports into a lyrical and harmonious portrait of hardship and despair in Batista's Cuba.
