Before Night Falls

Reinaldo Arenas

About the book

The Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas narrates his life: from his childhood, from the fight for the revolution and the shocking disillusionment of the new regime, which suppressed all freedom, from his imprisonment to flight and exile in New York, where he died of AIDS in 1990. Listed by the New York Times as one of the top ten books of 1993, the book sheds light on Cuba in the 1970s and introduces us to political, social, literary and sexual life in Havana.
