As ofhe is one of Cuba’s best known writers internationally. Glad I read it, nonetheless. Because of the descriptions of everyday life in Cuba. You get an exceptional ‘painting’ of the history and life in Cube as well as in the Netherlands during 17th century, a focus on the Jews and their story, a focus on Rembrandt and his living and finally a common pattern throughout the book about the meaning of acting freely and making choices, which could be presented in a more condensed way.

La primera parte es el tema. Annette Bross rated it it was ok Aug 08, Primer libro que leo de este escritor. Great stories but a book that we seem to have already read several times. I must admit pacura the last story did not really have a presence and seemed a bit weak compared to the others.
