A new mystery in hardcover from the godfather of Cuban Noir.
ARNALDO CORREA was born in the Escambray Mountains, Cuba, in 1935. In 1966, he published his first book of short stories, which was praised by Fidel Castro. Correa is considered one of three founders of the Cuban crime-fiction genre. He studied mining engineering at the University of Alabama, and traveled extensively through the US in the 1950s. He has worked on development projects in Cuba, Vietnam, Angola, and Mozambique. The 2002 hardcover edition of Spy’s Fate was his first novel in English translation, followed in 2003 by the highly acclaimed Cold Havana Ground. Correa currently lives in Havana.
In the stories of Havana Noir, authors uncover crimes of violence and loveless sex, of mental cruelty and greed, of self-preservation and collective hysteria, in a city characterized by ironic and wrenching contradictions.
