Read full description of the books:
El 7 de diciembre de 1990, el escritor cubano Reinaldo Arenas, en fase terminal de sida, se suicidó en Nueva York dejando este estremecedor terstimonio personal y político, que terminó apenas unos días antes de pones fin a su vida.
Arenas, en efecto, reunía las tres condiciones más idóneas para convertirse en uno de los mucho parias engendrados por el infierno carcelario de la Cuba castrista: ser escritor, homosexual y disidente. Y en esta autobiografia narra su peripecia vital e intelectual, desde los bajos fondos de La Habana, donde malviven los excluidos del sistema, hasta las dificultades del exilio, pues se negó a plegarse a la discreta neutralidad que la izquierda bien pensante esperaba de él.
Esta obra inspiró la película del mismo título, ganadora del Gran Premio del Jurado del Festival de Venecia, dirigida por Julian Schnabel y protagonizada por Javier Bardem, merecedor del Globo de Oro al Mejor Actor Dramático.

Read information about the authorArenas was born in the countryside, in the northern part of the Province of Oriente, Cuba, and later moved to the city of Holguín. In 1963, he moved to Havana to enroll in the School of Planification and, later, in the Faculty of Letters at the Universidad de La Habana, where he studied philosophy and literature without completing a degree. The following year, he began working at the Biblioteca Nacional José Martí. While there, his talent was noticed and he was awarded prizes at Cirilo Villaverde National Competition held by UNEAC (National Union of Cuban Writers and Artists). His Hallucinations was awarded "first Honorable Mention" in 1966 although, as the judges could find no better entry, no First Prize was awarded that year.
His writings and openly gay lifestyle were, by 1967, bringing him into conflict with the Communist government. He left the Biblioteca Nacional and became an editor for the Cuban Book Institute until 1968. From 1968 to 1974 he was a journalist and editor for the literary magazine La Gaceta de Cuba. In 1973, he was sent to prison after being charged and convicted of 'ideological deviation' and for publishing abroad without official consent. He escaped from prison and tried to leave Cuba by launching himself from the shore on a tire inner tube. The attempt failed and he was rearrested near Lenin Park and imprisoned at the notorious El Morro Castle alongside murderers and rapists. He survived by helping the inmates to write letters to wives and lovers. He was able to collect enough paper this way to continue his writing. However, his attempts to smuggle his work out of prison were discovered and he was severely punished. Threatened with death, he was forced to renounce his work and was released in 1976. In 1980, as part of the Mariel Boatlift, he fled to the United States. He came on the boat San Lazaro captained by Cuban immigrant Roberto Aguero.
