Twain and Stanley Enter Paradise by Oscar Hijuelos

At first the book starts kind of slow, hard to follow the story line, but you keep on reading because of Hijuelos great prose and grasp of character development. Then you get hooked on the relationship between Twain and Stanley, which is what the story is about. Not really a biography but a study on these two men who eventually fall for the same woman. Victorian mores what they are they take th... Read more of this blog post »

Review: This book centers on two themes: Havana and the military.

“My talent is looking into a woman's eyes and instinctively knowing what I need to. If she's lonely or bored; neglected or abused; timid or adventurous; satisfied or confused; looking to recapture the past or re-invent the present; making plans for tomorrow or merely concerned about tonight. I discover what a woman is looking for and promise it to her. If all she wants is a good time, she gets everything. If she wants more, I lie and take what she has to give. Then I move on.
