Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review
“Never loses the syntax of magic...a novel of great warmth and tenderness.”
Edith Milton
''Our House in the Last World'' is a novel of great warmth and tenderness. . . . he never loses the syntax of magic, which transforms even the unspeakable into a sort of beauty.
— The New York Times
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The chaotic experience of Cubans transplanted to New York City throbs through the narrator's voice in this debut novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love . ``Elegiac as well as bittersweet and celebratory, the lusty tone of this novel compensates for its erratic structure,'' stated PW. (Oct.)
Library Journal

Born in New York City to Cuban immigrants, Hector learns about his parent's native country and his heritage through their stories. This edition contains a new introduction and afterword by Hijuelos.
