Beschrijving uitgeverij

“A wild ride through Cuba during the Spanish-American War.” — Miami Herald “Not only his finest novel but one that transcends the limits of its genre and is worthy of being evaluated as literary fiction.” — Houston Chronicle Before Grand Master Elmore Leonard earned his well-deserved reputation as “the best writer of crime fiction alive” ( Newsweek ), he penned some of the finest western fiction to ever appear in print. (The classics Hombre , Valdez is Coming , and 3:10 to Yuma were just a few of his notable works.) With his extraordinary Cuba Libre , Leonard ingeniously combines all of his many talents and delivers a historical adventure/caper/western/noir like none other. The creator of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, star of Raylan , Pronto , Riding the Rap , and TV’s Justified , spins a gloriously exciting yarn about an American horse wrangler who escapes a date with a Cuban firing squad to join forces with a powerful sugar baron’s lady looking to make waves and score big in and around Spanish-American War-torn Havana in 1898. Everything you love about Leonard’s fiction—and more—is evident in Cuba Libre . No wonder the New York Times Book Review enthusiastically declared him “a literary genius.”
