Descriere

Oscar Mandinga, great-grandchild of the founders of a small hamlet deep in the Cuban hinterland, is a sardonic teller of tales – some taller than others. But one day Oscar wakes to find himself utterly alone, the sole descendant of his family line. He is not sure what to do or where to go, but in the midst of this uncertainty, he holds fast to what his grandfather always told him: ‘No man knows who he is until he knows his past.’ So Oscar sets out to find his ancestral village and the meaning of the magical pig’s-foot amulet he has inherited.RecenziiVivid, fast-moving and often dazzling ... The pace leaves you breathlessPig’s Foot is as catchy as a piece of Cuban music, defers to Latin America’s literary tradition and shimmers with a likable swagger all its ownVibrantElegant and seductiveA little pressure cooker of a novelSpellbinding ... Acosta does for prose what he has done for the ballet, bringing to it a muscular sexiness and a rural saltinessAn exuberantly enjoyable taleAn enormously warm-hearted novel: tearful at times, triumphant at othersNota biograficaCarlos Acosta was born in Havana in 1973 and trained at the National Ballet School of Cuba.
