Image Author Reading - Mylene Fernández-Pintado  at Oakland Public Library

Award-winning Cuban author Mylene Fernández-Pintado will be reading from her latest novel A Corner of the World. This is her first book to appear in English, translated by Dick Cluster. Event will be bilingual and copies will be available for sale and signing.

"Love in Havana, love found and mislaid. In thoughtfully chosen words—just those needed, and no more—Mylene Fernandez offers us a magnificent gift. Her story of lost love and the difficult pursuit of literature is at the same time an X-ray of life in Havana, set in a present where glimpses of the future have not yet arrived."—Leonardo Padura, author of The Man Who Loved Dogs and the Mario Conde novels of Havana”.

La premiada autora cubana Mylene Fernández-Pintada nos leerá fragmentos de su novela La esquina del mundo. Traducida por Dick Cluster, es su primera obra editada en inglés. Evento bilingüe, súmense! Habrá libros para comprar.

“Un amor en La Habana, amor ganado y extraviado. Mylene Fernández, con sobriedad y sólo las palabras precisas, nos ofrece un magnífico regalo. Su historia de encuentros y desencuentros -- incluso en la literatura -- constituye una radiografía de vidas habaneras en un tiempo presente sin vislumbres de futuro.”  -- Leonardo Padura.
