One of 3 books by Cuban authors I read this month - thanks to a friend's prep for a trip to Cuba.

Enjoyed some of the short stories, and made it through some others. Was good exposure for me to another culture. All stories were translated by other than the original authors.

The bios of the authors and translators was as good or better than some of the stories.
