A "darkly hilarious" (Elle) novel about a fictionalized Fidel Castro and an octogenarian Cuban exile obsessed with seeking revenge by the National Book Award finalist Cristina Garcia, this "clever, well-conceived dual portrait shows what connects and divides Cubans inside and outside of the island" (Kirkus Reviews).

Vivid and teeming with life, King of Cuba transports readers to Cuba and Miami, and into the heads of two larger-than-life men: a fictionalized Fidel Castro and an octogenarian Cuban exile obsessed with seeking revenge against the dictator. Garcia's masterful twinning of these characters combines with a rabble of other Cuban voices to portray the passions and realities of two Cubas - on the island and off - in a pulsating story that entertains and illuminates.
