La Habana Negra: le minoranze nella narrativa di Padura Fuentes


Francesca Valentini    Università degli Studi di Trieste, Italia    


The narrative of Padura Fuentes outlines the ‘other’ side of La Habana, away from immaculate beaches and fine cigars. Master of Cuban detective stories, Padura explores dark corners of the city, representing the violence which is consumed in the suburban neighborhoods but not only: the writer offers a picture of the city unspoken, that of minorities. From Máscaras to La cola de la serpiente, the novels of Padura can be read as enigmas, but also as sociological material: the author uses the detection to present the city of Havana in all its shapes, even those which are forced to edges.
