A vibrant picture of the Mafia’s Caribbean empire when Havana was the playground of the rich & infamous. With a novelistic eye for detail & drama, prize-winning author Cirules presents a shockingly glamorous & fantastically seedy picture of the world of Sinatra & the showgirls, mambo & marijuana, “Lucky” Luciano & Meyer Lansky. This book provides an extensive investigation into the Cuban underworld, uncovering the close ties between the Mafia, U.S. bus. & intelligence agencies, & their often brutal reign over Cuban politics. The book won the Casa de las Americas Prize for Latin American literature & the Casa de las Americas Critics’ Prize. It features stunning photos of the legendary personalities of the era. Translated from the Span.-lang. ed. Illus.
