Publishers Weekly, 1994-09-19 This informative, entertaining collection of Infante's essays, speeches and book reviews features the viewpoint of an anti-Castroite expelled from Cuba's Union of Writers and Artists as ``a traitor to the revolutionary cause.'' Infante (Infante's Inferno), born in 1929, has been in exile since 1965, living mostly in Madrid and London. Antic and cheerfully defiant, he here expresses scathing disgust over Castro's policy toward Cuba's gay writers and discusses several of them. Infante's favorite is clearly Virgilio Piħera, whose work he predicts ``will live, twist and giggle forever.'' He also introduces us to Lydia Cabrera, whom he calls Cuba's greatest woman writer. The collection includes a masterful piece on the reactions of eminent foreign writers who have visited his homeland, such as Federico Garc?a Lorca, Graham Greene and Edna O'Brien. Quirky, unpredictable, often hilarious, Infante's book tells us much about the effect of the Cuban revolution on Cuban literature. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
