Mona and Other Tales
Publisher: Vintage BooksFormat: Paperback
Mona and Other Tales""covers Reinaldo Arenas's entire career: his recently rediscovered debut (which got him a job at the Biblioteca Nacional in Havana), stories written in a political prison, and some of his last works, written in exile. Many of the stories have not previously appeared in English.Here is the tender story of a boy who recognizes evil for the first time and decides to ignore it; the tale of a writer struggling between the demands of creativity and of fame; common people dealing with changes brought about by revolution and exile; a romp with a famous, dangerous woman in the Metropolitan Museum; an outrageous fantasy that picks up where Garcia Lorca's famous play “The House of Bernardo Alba” ends. Told with Arenas's famous wit and humanity, Mona makes a perfect introduction to this important writer.Translated from the Spanish by Dolores Koch.
