PDF The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love

Book description

I cannot BELIEVE this book won a Pulitzer.I bought it because of the shiny red cover with the big silver medal-looking sticker on the front (yes, that is how I judge books).The Cuban history/living in New York as a Cuban/music scene perspective was interesting, but it was overshadowed by the long, long, LONG woe-is-me sad-sack self-destructive fatalistic characters who were, for the most part, unlikable and unrelatable, and the pages and pages of sex.Not sexy sex; DH Lawrence this is not.It's more like forensic sex.There are much better books about Cuban jazz musicians, I'm sure, if that's what you're in to.I almost never would label a book "DO NOT READ", even if I didn't particularly care for it.This book is one of the few.However, I'm apparently one of the only people who feels this way.The Pulitzer guys certainly didn't agree with me.
