Cuba: the conundrum of the Caribbean still. Few countries its size can claim so many outstanding writers and artists. Even fewer have succeeded in alienating nearly all of them. Most of the best and the brightest of Cuba are in exile. The exodus, begun two decades ago, has accelerated in the last two years. Three of the island's leading writers— Guillermo Cabrera Infante, Octavio Armand, and Reinaldo Arenas—offer different perspectives on the pain and challenge of exile, on the Revolution, and on Cuba's rich and varied contribution to the present cultural renaissance of Latin America.
