Library Journal Review

A dose of suspense, a crime of passion, erotic love, the triumph of friendship‘these are some of the ingredients that make this novel by Cuban author Valdés such a gripping read. Valdés relates the story of a group of friends who live in different parts of the world but who keep in touch via telephone, FAX, or the Internet. It is from Marcela that we learn of the continuous battles fought by these friends when they lived in Cuba as she chronicles their current hopes and desires and recalls how they escaped from prison, censorship, and the boredom of everyday life. They all dream of a place where, after years of separation, they can get together again, and their dreams eventually will lead them to Café Nostalgia, the popular nightclub on Miami's Calle Ocho. Previous novels by this author are La nada cotidiana, translated into English as Yocandra in the Paradise of Nada (LJ 4/1/97), and Te di la vica entera.‘Jorge Gonzalez (c) Copyright 2010.
