Join the celebrated Cuban author Leonardo Padura Fuentes and his UK publisher Bitter Lemon Press for an evening of conversation about his latest book in translation, The Man Who Loved Dogs.

Leonardo is in London as part of a world tour. Already Cuba’s most acclaimed author in the hispanophone world, with the publication in English of this epic historical novel about the death of Russian Revolutionary Leon Trotsky, Leonardo is poised to become equally recognised in the UK and the US.

This evening Leonardo will be discussing his life and work and the current situation in Cuba with Dr Stephen Wilkinson, Editor of the International Journal of Cuban Studies and author of Detective Fiction in Cuban Society and Culture (Peter Lang 2006) which analyses Leonardo’s early detective stories, also published in translation by Bitter Lemon Press.

A wine reception will follow the event and there will be an opportunity to purchase signed copies of the works discussed.

The event is sponsored by the International Institute for the Study of Cuba, The Institute of Latin American Studies and Bitter Lemon Press.
