Product Description

ABOUT THE BOOK Lucho Seguido loved sex. He was your everyday, happy-go-lucky teenager in Bahana, Cab until the revolution and the communist takeover. He had to grow up fast. Within a very few months, he was doing some things he would have never dreamed, with the coldness of a professional assassin. And things were being done that no one could have imagined --to him and to his entire family; indeed, to the whole nation. As persecution and beatings became rougher, so did his sex life. Patria, Luchos mother, worries. And when she worries, she cooks. So she cooks a lot in this book, making the reader privy to some great Cuaban recipes. (A cookbook will follow). There are many other key characters. Good, bad, weak, strong. All very human. The book, then, has many angles, many frames: cooking tips; funny, sexy anecdotes; great descriptions of the land and its people. But then, there is that other Frame (with a capital F) that keeps building throughout its pages: the gradual encasing of the human mind. This last Frame, with its violent, sinister undertones, also makes the book a prime study on revolution. C+AB: A FRAME OF MIND is about what happens when one not-so-hot world view is defeated at a certain time and placeby another one, more ruthless and intransigent. It is about a frame, as in a perspective or posture; but also a framing, as when something or someone-- is boxed in and cut off from everything. It is a Ying and Yang. It is something that deals with History in a specific circumstance, yet something that addresses the history of History --like a warped Twilight Zone. C+AB: A FRAME OF MIND addresses the dialogue in the world today, and shows the horrors that can happen by not coming up with the right answers. Then, it puts the 'ball' right in your 'court': Because, "To witness a crime in silence, is to commit it" [JosT Martf]
