Reviews
"A jewel of a book, written by a Renaissance man. At once learned and passionate, "Cuban Fiestas" is a meditation on art and its engagement with time and place, those two vectors that intersect in our minds and hearts and determine who we are."--Carlos Eire, author of "Waiting for Snow in Havana"


"Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria is the leading critic of Hispanic literature--American and Iberian--now living. His synthesis of contemporary critical modes with the classical and romantic traditions of interpretation is original and influential. As a mediator between Spanish language and English language literatures, he is beyond comparison."--Harold Bloom

--Harold Bloom
"In "Cuban Fiestas", Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria shows that the" fiesta cubana", as represented in classic paintings, memorialized in Cuban novels both early and late, re-enacted in nightclubs and on film, and even performed on the field of dreams of Cuba's national sport of baseball, is a presence whose force, despite history and within history, stands tall and prevails."--Rolena Adorno author "The Polemics of Possession in Spanish American Narrative"
