9780897293242: Las Mejores Estampas de Eladio Secados (Colección Antologías)

Eladio Secades style is a little like the American Benchley who wrote "The Off-Islanders" and several books of essays about typical American characters. Secades was a newspaperman in Cuba and his Estampas were published in the paper weekly, if I remember correctly. The Estampas are small essays about typical Cuban people and attitudes. Unlike other people, Cubans laughed at themselves during those years. We laughed at the chaperons who took daughters to dances; we laughed at the "picuo" (a Cuban word that in other Hispanic countries may be equated to "cursi") who wore the huge medal of St. Lazarus; we laughed at the politicians, something we shared with most other countries! If you are of Cuban descent, I strongly recommend this book. If you are a Spanish speaker without Cuban roots, you might miss some of its humor, but the writing is fluid and superb for its type. I recommend it.
