In a clear protective Brodart mylar cover. John Sayles is the independent writer/director/actor of The Return of the Secaucus Seven and Matewan, among others. This is his third novel, and it's set in Miami in 1981 and spans six decades, from the turn of the century Cuba to present day Miami. Marta de la Pena is a beautiful, religious, and obsessed woman who yearns to avenge the murder of her beloved brother in the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion. It is a novel of political events and upheavels, of people struggling to embrace their new home while the memories of their lost country still burn inside. Light foxing to top page edges, slight bump to bottom corner of rear boards, Bookseller Inventory # L034

Synopsis: Set in contemporary Miami, this is a portrait of a Cuban community. The characters include Cuban exiles, hustlers, wheeler-dealers, cynics, dreamers and drug barons. Running through the whole book are a central group of characters plotting the restoration of right-wing capitalism to Cuba.

Nominated for both an Academy Award for scriptwriting and a National Book Award, Sayles has written screenplays, teleplays, short stories, and novels and has worked as a script doctor for a virtual who's who of Hollywood film and television talent.
