Item description for Animal tropical by Pedro Juan Gutierrez...

El libro contiene varias historias coincidentes, pero en esencia es la historia de un hombre atormentado. Pedro Juan, el personaje mtico de la Trilogia sucia de La Habana, quien ahora tiene 50 aos y pretende escribir una novela. Tiene amores con dos mujeres bien diferentes. Una sueca de cuarenta aos, y una picara de Centro Habana, mulata de treinta aos, con gran experiencia de la vida y una filosofia peculiar. Su autor permite leer aqui una trama superior que a la vez esconde un tejido tupido, fuerte y denso, que se mueve como un laberinto subterraneo por debajo de la novela.

Reviews - What do customers think about Animal tropical?

A good read again- more of Pedro Juan G's revelations.  Jul 17, 2003
If you are familiar with this author's writing style and his themes, you will easily identify with this book as it is an extension or better yet a part of a series of four books that depict Cuba from his own personal experiences (the other three are Trilogia sucia de la Habana, El Rey de la Habana and El Insaciable hombre araña). This one is more focused on two periods in his life and his experiences with two women in particular- Gloria and Agneta. Gloria is his Cuban interest and Agneta, a Swedish female that was a part of his life for a brief period of time. What we see in this book in comparison to la Trilogia and El Insaciable hombre araña is Pedro Juan Gutierrez in his fifties, still destitute, poor, unstable in every sense of the word (professionally, monetarily and relationship wise) who is holding on to a dream of being an author and a professional artist. Due to the numerous obstacles that stand in his way and his inability to dedicate time to being what he wants to become we witness the same issues that were part of his life in his earlier years as a younger person. His life as we see it is dictated by his insatiable desire for a women's body, rum and drugs. Out from these experiences the reader is also getting a small history lesson about what Cuba was like in the 90's and still very much so today however, the 90's seemed to be the culminating point of the modern Cuban depression due to the fall of the Soviet Union. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. I was not at all offended by the language and vivid descriptions of his actions. All was taken in context. Once again I found this writing style of Pedro Juan Gutierrez daring but true and reveals details and the consequences that sometimes result due to extreme poverty.
