Infante’s Inferno

Latin American Literature Series
G. Cabrera Infante
Translated by G. Cabrera Infante

Hidden behind a cloak of exotic mystery, Cuba is virtually unknown to American citizens. G. Cabrera Infante—in Infante’s Inferno and several of his other novels—allows readers to peek behind the curtain surrounding this island and see the vibrant life that existed there before Fidel Castro’s regime.

Detailing the sexual education and adventures of the author, Infante’s Inferno is a lush, erotic, funny book that provides readers with insight into what it was like to grow up in pre-revolutionary Havana. Viewing every girl as a potential lover, and the movies as a place both for entertainment and potential sexual escapades, Cabrera Infante captures the adolescent male mindset with a great deal of fun and self-consciousness.

With his hallmark of puns and wordplay—excellently translated by Suzanne Jill Levine—Cabrera Infante has hilariously updated the Don Juan myth in a tropical setting.
