Even in translation, Three Trapped Tigers remains a most Cuban book — Cuban with an American accent, that is. It's emotional, ironic and irreverent.

Born in Cuba, Guillermo Cabrera Infante (1929--2005) was a supporter of the revolution and a cultural attaché under Castro's regime until his journal was censored and shut down by the new government. In 1965 he went into exile and became one of the earliest and most outspoken of Castro's Cuban critics. He produced both fiction and nonfiction, including the novel Infante's Inferno and the "history" Holy Smoke. He was also the screenwriter of such acclaimed and notorious films as Vanishing Point and Wonderwall.
