THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
7 p.m. Reception | 7:30 Reading |
This collection of 16 short stories, selected by Havana-based Cuban writer and Sampsonia Way columnist Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, includes works by “post-Fidel” writers in English translation, never before published outside of Cuba. Books will be available for sale at the event.
“This compilation of short stories might well say more about Cuba’s reality than most news reports. Some of the island’s best emerging writers reach outside Cuba through their work – even as we look in – sometimes with depth, sometimes with irreverence but always with great punch.” - Juan O. Tamayo, Miami Herald (USA)
“Cubans no longer speak the same language…In Generation Year Zero, sarcasm, deterritorialization, transvestism,fragmentation, colloquialism, hybridization, adventure, and imagination are redesigning Cuban identity, recovering their power of subversion and resignifying Utopia.” – Paulo A. Paranagua, Le Monde (France)
