Cuba Counterpoint Top Ten Summer Reading List

An Address in Havana highlighted in Top Ten Summer Reading List in Cuba Counterpoint webzine! 

From Cuba Counterpoints:

Summer is upon us, along with a heat wave that is knocking down much of the Northern Hemisphere, from Miami to Matanzas to Madrid to Münich. Cuba Counterpoints is barely one-and-a-half months-old and many of us are about to hit the beach or, alternatively, the air-conditioned couch for a well-deserved rest. In case you are too, or at least you have some down time, we -the Cuban Counterpoints community- have a few good reads in mind for you: ten, to be exact. They are here divided into Fiction and non-Fiction.

An Address in Havana/Domicilio Habanero (Trans. Barbara Riess, Cubanabooks, 2014) gathers together some of the most fascinating short stories by journalist and writer María Elena Llana. Written over several decades, these portraits of female characters navigate changing worlds, told in a mocking spirit that frequently gestures toward the supernatural. Like all of the publications of Cubanabooks, a small, independent publisher focusing on writing by Cuban women, Llana’s is published in an attractive bilingual edition.
