Guillermo Cabrera Infante was born in Gibara, Cuba in 1929. He has written novels, stories, critical essays and screenplays, and has lectured at universities throughout the world. He grew up in Cuba under the dictator Batista, knew Guevara (whom he calls Chaos Guevara) and Fidel Castro personally, and lives now in England as an exile. Hailed by the Sunday Times as 'the most outstanding living Cuban novelist', he is the author of Three Trapped Tigers, Infante's Inferno, Holy Smoke, View of Dawn in the Tropics and Writes of Passage, and a collection of film criticism (written from 1954 to 1960, before his exile, under the pseudonym G. Cain), A Twentieth Century Job.Language Notes:
