Norberto Fuentes - Hemingway a Cuba
Italian | Gamberetti | 1996 | ISBN: 887990020X | 320 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Hemingway si stabilisce a Cuba nel 1938 e, pur allontanandosi spesso, vi rimarrà per oltre vent'anni. Fuentes ci parla di quello straordinario periodo attraverso i luoghi e i personaggi a lui più cari: dal porticciolo di Cojímar al bar Floridita, dal fedele marinaio Gregorio all'incontro con Fidel Castro. "Sono stati necessari molti anni di scrupolose ricerche per comprendere quanto Hemingway fosse penetrato nell'anima di Cuba… Fuentes ci restituisce il nostro Hemingway, un uomo ossessionato dall'incertezza e dalla brevità della vita, ma che è riuscito come pochi a decifrare i misteri del mestiere più solitario del mondo". Gabriel García Márquez.

Genre: Travel

Cuba occupies a place of undisputed fascination in the American psyche. Despite its proximity to America, this island nation remains a mystery to most Americans. Few Americans have traveled to Havana, and still fewer have traveled deeper into this isolated country. Chris Messner, a photographer, is one of the few Americans who have been able to travel extensively throughout this island. In his book, Cuba Open from the Inside, Messner documents the character of Cuba's people, its rich history, and the vast culture of the country. As Cuba's leaders age and the possibility of travel to Cuba increases, this book acts as an exceptional resource for would be travelers. Through multiple journeys, Messner has covered more than 4,000 miles on the back roads of Cuba. Through his words, he provides a snapshot of this island nation and documents the Cuba of today - the 1950s time-capsule country 90 miles from the US coast.
