About this product
- DescriptionWhen journalist Daniel Quinn meets Ernest Hemingway at the Floridita bar in Havana, Cuba, in 1957, he has idea that his own affinity for simple, declarative sentences will change his life radically overnight. So begins William Kennedy's latest vel -- a tale of revolutionary intrigue, heroic journalism, crooked politicians, drug-running gangsters, Albany race riots, and the improbable rise of Fidel Castro. Quinn's epic journey carries him through the nightclubs and jungles of Cuba and into the newsrooms and racially charged streets of Albany on the day Robert Kennedy is fatally shot in 1968. The odyssey brings Quinn, and his exotic but unpredictable wife Renata, a debutante revolutionary, face to face with the darkest facets of human nature and illuminates the power of love in the presence of death.
