Es un libro que nunca estuvo en mi lista de pendientes, y me alegro profundamente de haberlo reinald casi sorpresivamente. Jul 31, Troy Rutman rated it it was amazing.

He was constantly interrogated to make a confession that he was counterrevolutionary, a homosexual, and the names of his conspirators. So this section of a memoir completely devoted to the sexual apotheosis of the otherwise shelved sensual world is suddenly reversed when he has to bite his lip, hide his boner and try to avoid the sexual deviancy taking over in a prison that is a microcosm of the worst politics Cuba has to offer devoting its utmost energies to a fascist reversion of the homosexual contra that the system seems to be so convinced thereof.

Isn’t that the point of literature: Absolutely rated it really arenass it Shelves: Very quickly the Castro government suppressed his writing and persecuted him for his homosexuality until he was finally imprisoned.

Published June 15th by Serpents Tail first published And Marquez is not a patch on Borges.

This book turned me against the likes of Gabriel Marcia Marquez and loads of Cuban poets who Arenas describes with scorn on account of their backstabbing too many poets who were not for or critical of the communist system.

Reinaldo Arenas, con voz de denuncia, narra las vivencias que tuvo naciendo en una annochezca, y viviendo en otra mucho peor.


sue It merely reported a life that was not happening. HERE, let me offer you up a pretty quote detailing the pitfalls of the system: The sense of friendship became nonexistent because if you spoke against Fidel or mention plans of escaping you would anres arrested by the secret police.

A brave, honest and tragic autobiography, in a way demonstrating the persistence of idealism and hope despite the horrors of Castro’s Cuba and the brutal disappointments of exile. In quel momento il professore aveva un enorme piatto di cibo davanti e io gli dissi: I will never understand how people worship Fidel Castro and Che Guevara.

I guess an honest thing this book projects is the lack of hope for ideal structures in government and arnas life, and how the system never owned up to its own failings.
