Like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, or Isabel Allende, a wonderful nearly century-long tale of one family's life in Cuba and America. Touches on themes of immigration and emigration, the Cuban revolution, immigrant integration into the fabric of America, etc... Beautifully written.

Nice quality HB edition of this epic novel - spanning a century of the Montez O'Brien family: their lives, loves, tragedies in a small Pennsylvania town: Irish photographer father, aristocratic Cuban mother, 14 daughters and one son! "Raucous and heartfelt"

So good, the story of a young man and how complicated life can be coming from a different cultural background surrounded by unique women. It was excellent.

Oscar Hijuelos is a wonderful writer and this is a wonderful book. He paints his characters with compassion and delicacy. You get a real feel for who these people, what their lives are, and how they come to the places they are in. Strongly recommended.
