About the Author
Praise For The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love…
"A rich and sorrowful novel... that alternates crisp narrative with opulent musings--the language of everyday and the language of longing. You finish feeling... ready to throw up your arms and cry, Que bueno es! Mr. Hijuelos is writing music of the heart."
-New York Times Book Review
"Brilliant... memorable... a heady and powerful triumph... one of the most spectacularly vibrant and moving works by an American in years."
-Alice Metcalf Miller, Cleveland Plain Dealer
