GUANTANAMERA, published by Mondadori, 1991
Series Segretissimo n°1190
A novel based on a very up to date political issue, projected in a future so close to be nearly actual and accompanied by the sound of an old heart melting song.
A stunning mulatto woman forces her way into the life of Thomas Monreale, a former CIA agent, and her image lies upon that of the much beloved wife that he lost too soon. A strange man bravely faces horrible tortures in a lurid jail whilst a few young “idealists” plan his liberation and fight for a better future.
The whole scene is set under the cobalt blue sky of a masterly described Cuba. The tale is told to the rhythm of an old, languid song, while the Castro regime slowly but inevitably comes undone.
A novel based on a very up to date political issue, projected in a future so near to be nearly actual.
The passionate style of the book leads, through an evocative journey, to an utterly unexpected end.
