about

Defining the political and aesthetic tensions that have shaped Cuban culture for over forty years, Linda Howe explores the historical and political constraints imposed upon Cuban artists and intellectuals during and after the Revolution. Focusing on the work of Afro-Cuban writers Nancy Morejón and prominent novelist Miguel Barnet, Howe exposes the complex relationship between Afro-Cuban intellectuals and government authorities as well as the racial issues present in Cuban culture.

Editorial Reviews

"Transgression and Conformity is foxy, courageous, well-informed.  It comes from first-hand knowledge of high-and-low life in Cuba in the nineties. Linda Howe proves that those who do Cuban studies without frequent visits to the island risk knowing nothing of relevance about the rough and tender moods and textures of its human drama."— Eduardo González, Johns Hopkins University
