Product Overview

Habana Soterrada - Hidden Havana Descubre La Habana contempor?nea, gay, vibrante pero soterrada. "Discover contemporary Havana's hidden gay, and vibrant scene" Habana Soterrada - Las Costas del Para?so cuenta la historia de Enos, cuya vida er?tica gira alrededor de la vibrante pero soterrada escena gay de La Habana. A trav?s del texto el lector es testigo de una amplia gama de posturas y tensiones culturales, que constituyen un fresco de la vida gay en Cuba. En realidad, toda la novela es como un fresco que describe la b?squeda de la felicidad. Al progresar la historia, Enos se vuelve menos promiscuo y se empe?a en fundar una relaci?n estable, pero los resultados son frustrantes y fallidos. En cada intento, Enos descubre que sus apetitos sexuales son m?s fuertes que su deseo de estabilidad emocional, y constantemente traiciona sus propios intentos de b?squeda amorosa. Al mismo tiempo, Enos, inconscientemente, ha estado jugando los roles negativos y positivos descritos en las tradiciones espirituales. Con una mezcla de lenguaje po?tico, escatolog?a y citas del Budismo y la C?bala, el narrador describe la dicotom?a entre la vida del protagonista y su b?squeda de paz interior. Al final Enos encara muchos retos y dificultades que lo llevan al borde de la muerte. As? se da cuenta de que en el camino ha aprendido algo valioso: se conoce mejor a s? mismo y eso le trae la comprensi?n y la paz de que ha carecido toda su vida. The Shores of Paradise tells the story of Enos, whose sensual, erotic life revolves around the vibrant but still hidden Havana gay scene. In it, the reader witnesses a wide array of cultural behaviors and tensions, much like a fresco depicting every aspect of Cuban gay life. Indeed, the whole novel is like a fresco, retelling Man's universal quest for happiness. As the story progresses, Enos becomes less promiscuous, and tries his best to find a solid relationship, only to find disappointment and failure. At every turn, Enos finds that his sexual appetites are stronger than his desire for stability, and constantly betrays his own attempts to find true love. At the same time, Enos has unconsciously been playing the positive and negative roles described in the the esoteric traditions of Eastern philosophy. Using a mix of original poetic language and direct quotations from Buddhist and Kabala Literature, the omniscient narrator tells the reader about the dichotomy between Enos's outer life and his search for inner peace. In the end, Enos faces many challenges and difficulties that almost lead to his death. In the face of his own demise, he realizes that he has learned something very valuable. He knows himself better, and this fact brings him the understanding and peace which had been lacking in his life.
