Sun-worshippers' paradise, socialist utopia, tropical gulag - Cuba is many things to many people, but show me a man who exalts its culinary merits and I'll show you a very hungry person. But then, there is a US trade embargo. It tells the story of five Habaneros who idle away their days on their apartment-block balcony. Eighty-seven-year-old Viejo smokes cigars, drinks rum and talks frequently and loudly; Sonador paints; Negro pumps iron; and the two female characters, Esposa and Guapa, lust after the young men who, despite their close physical proximity, remain emotionally unavailable. the title refers to Olayinka Giwa's Negro, a sullen man-child who lifts weights while waiting for a phone call from his father, an el exilio who escaped to Miami on a raft years ago. It also alludes to the unbearable strain of dreams deferred, of five very different people united in their inability to determine the course of their own lives. An affecting snapshot of life in the final days of Castro's Cuba.
Tarnara Gausi, Time Out London
