About the Author

Guillermo Rosales (b. Cuba 1946 - d. Miami, 1993) grew up in revolutionary Cuba where his father served in Cuba's diplomatic corps. He became a journalist and then a promising novelist. Yet, his work was denounced as "morose, pornographic, and irreverent" by the Communist Party, which led to his first nervous breakdown. Forced to leave the country for Miami, he suffered from schizophrenia, was in and out of psychiatric wards, then tragically, after destroying most of his unpublished manuscripts, shot himself at age 47.
The daughter of Cuban exiles, Anna Kushner was born in Philadelphia and has been traveling to Cuba since 1999. She has translated the novels of Norberto Fuentes, Marcial Gala, Leonardo Padura, Guillermo Rosales, and Gonçalo M. Tavares, as well as two collections of non-fiction by Mario Vargas Llosa.
