Distant Palaces book. Não é a primeira vez que uma cidade se torna quase como a principal personagem de um livro de ficção, mas descrever Havana como o faz Abílio Estevez, com uma crueza e ao mesmo tempo uma imensa tristeza mesclada com pinceladas de amor, não é fácil. Nunca fui a Havana, mas depois de ter lido este livro, parece-me que percorri essa cidade, decrépita, "velha", cheia de uma gente própria que a sente como sua e apesar de a criticar ela (a c Este livro consistiu numa muito agradável surpresa.

Abilio Est-vez was born in Havana in 1954 and lives in Spain. He is the author of plays, a collection of poems and a volume of short stories. Библиографические данные.

Reading Abilio Estevez's Thine Is the Kingdom is a little like attending a cocktail party blindfolded: a million conversations are all happening at the same time and you have to work to figure out just who's talking. But this remarkable novel out of Cuba is worth the extra effort. Set in a run-down enclave of pre-Castro Havana known as the Island, the story follows the fortunes of its residents through a magical realist dreamscape of fantasy, history, life, death, love, and the weather.

Abilio Estevez conjures up the melancholy beauty of contemporary Havana with passion and eloquence in this story about a trio of misfits. When Victorio learns that his home is about to be demolished he leaves his job, burns his possessions and takes to the streets. Wandering the city, he meets two people who change his life: Salma, a young prostitute, and Don Fuco, an enigmatic old man who performs as a clown. In the ruins of an old theatre, Don Fuco initiates his new friends into the secrets of poetry and theatre, bringing beauty, magic and exuberance into the pinched lives of Havana's citizens. "Distant Palaces" is a novel about human resilience and joy in the face of crushing odds. It confirms Abilio Estevez as one of Latin America's most talented and inventive novelists.

"Estevez's second novel (after Thine Is the Kingdom) is a consummate affirmation of life amidst the squalor of Havana, with prose as lush as the Caribbean setting it describes. On the eve of the 21st century, a middle-aged (...) man named Victorio becomes homeless when the manor in which he rents an apartment is demolished. Wandering the streets, he encounters Salma, a young female prostitute, and Don Fuco, an older man trained as an acrobatic clown. The three move into a rundown theater and find solace with one another, especially while entertaining Havana's downtrodden with their clown act. Even when they must return to the harsh streets, Victorio and Salma find the strength and coursage to endure. Estevez's experience as a playwright (Night) is keenly evident in this novel's theatrical spirit. He enriches his novel further by drawing allusions, metaphors, and images from the literature and history of Cuba. Highly recommended for all fiction collections." (...)

I loved it. I wish I new Spanish to read the original, but the translation was good. I was ready to abandon the book after the first 15 pages, but I'm glad I stayed with it. One is taken on a magical ride with twists and turns and history and theater and.... I usually do not read fiction, but I'm glad I read this one.
