Description
Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestseller: A "lush, tipsy, all-night mambo of a novel about Cuban musicians in strange places like New York City" ( People ). Brothers Nestor and Cesar Camillo arrive from Cuba in 1949 with dreams of becoming famous mambo musicians. This memorable novel traces the arc of the two brothers' lives--one charismatic and macho, the other soulful and sensitive--from Havana to New York, from East Coast clubs and dance halls to the heights of musical fame. The basis for a popular film, The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love "tells of the triumphs and tragedies that befall two men blessed with gigantic appetites and profoundly melancholic hearts. . . . Hijuelos has depicted a world as enchanting as that in Garcia Marquez's Love in the Time of Cholera " ( Publishers Weekly ). "Rich and provocative . . . a moving portrait of a man, his family, a community and a time." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
