Product Overview

En su libro de memorias Nieve en La Habana, el cual gan? el Premio Nacional del Libro en 2003, Carlos Eire narra su ni?ez en Cuba en la ?poca del triunfo de la revoluci?n y la llegada al poder de Fidel Castro. Esa historia termina en 1962, en el avi?n que lleva a Carlos y a su hermano desde La Habana a Miami para comenzar una nueva vida, como sucedi? a miles de ni?os cubanos. Pasar?an a?os antes de que Carlos volviera a ver a su madre. Y nunca m?s volver?a a ver a su padre, por quien sent?a una verdadera devoci?n.

Miami y Mis Mil Muertes sigue el cuento en el momento en que aquel avi?n aterriza y Carlos comienza una nueva vida impulsado por sus miedos y esperanzas. Enseguida se da cuenta de que para llegar a ser americano tendr? que ?morir? el Carlos cubano que hasta ahora ha sido. Se enfrenta al eterno dilema del inmigrante que debe aprender ingl?s, ir a una escuela americana y descifrar un futuro incierto: est? en el pa?s de las oportunidades, pero a?n no es capaz de aprovecharlas. A pesar de la dura realidad de los hogares adoptivos donde ha de vivir, el muchacho se abre paso, dejando atr?s cualquier vestigio de su vida pasada hasta el punto de cambiar su nombre y convertirse en Charles.Miami y Mis Mil Muertes es un exorcismo y una oda a esa experiencia, es un homenaje a la renovaci?n, a los momentos de la vida en que tenemos la certeza de haber muerto y, de alguna manera milagrosa, haber vuelto a nacer.
