The autobiography of Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas, describing his early life in Cuba, his time in prison, and his escape to the United States in 1980. Born to a poverty-stricken family in rural Cuba, by the time of his death in New York four decades later, he had become one of Cuba’s most important poets, an outspoken critic of Castro’s regime and one of the leading gay voices of the twentieth century.
