    As the weather heats up it is easy to envision oneself on a beach with a rum and Coke in hand The preferred beverage in Cuba before Castro s take over, rum invokes images of Havana as a city teeming with night life and rivaling Miami as the gateway to Latin America It is with this sensuous imagery at hand that I selected Oscar Hijuelos Mambo Kin

    A plump, juicy, sexy tropical fruit of a novel Its immediately evident why it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize as a matter of fact, it comes from a proud line of family sagas all of them conjoined fatefully with the history of our nation The Castillo Bros castle siblings are the Kings of their music and major purveyors of the Cuban American Zeitgei

    I cannot BELIEVE this book won a Pulitzer I bought it because of the shiny red cover with the big silver medal looking sticker on the front yes, that is how I judge books The Cuban history living in New York as a Cuban music scene perspective was interesting, but it was overshadowed by the long, long, LONG woe is me sad sack self destructive fatal

    Like clockwork, highly viscous, graphic coitus every 3 5 pages Give that book The Pulitzer Prize

    This book is nostalgic, exotic, erotic and narcotic It is a beautiful book and I have returned to it several times and each time I am completely swept up emotionally by it With mere words on a page, the author creates the melodies of the Mambo era, the smells of rural Cuban cane fields, the sweat of a dance hall, the swelter of a New York City summer Th
