Havana Habit
An acclaimed poet and critic presents an affectionate examination of Cuba in America's cultural imagination.

Pérez Firmat has handled this topic with a light, humorous touch without diminishing its more serious aspects."-Jay Freeman, Booklist "Mr. Pérez Firmat catalogs the ways in which Cuba has influenced American tastes and infiltrated American culture . . . to suggest the pride of place Havana once had in the American imagination."-Eric Felten, Wall Street Journal "A tale of two closely tied cultures, The Havana Habit is told with both élan and humor."-Oscar Hijuelos, author of The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love
