Pedro Juan Gutiérrez
Pedro Juan Gutiérrez exploded onto the literary landscape three
years ago with his bestselling novel, Dirty
Havana Trilogy. Hugely acclaimed for its honest depiction
of a Cuban capital characterized by sleaze, sex, poverty and
hedonism, in The Insatiable Spiderman we see the
return of its anti-hero, who is again prowling the streets
Pedro Juan's relationship
with his wife, Julia, is in terminal decline, and the trappings
of domestic bliss hold no charms for this most restless and
predatory of men. Our narrator's interests lie elsewhere:
in the infinite possibilities of a chaotic Caribbean city
and the chancers, artists and prostitutes who roam the streets.
In his inimitably
uncompromising and exhilarating style, Pedro Juan Gutiérrez
again takes the reader on a journey into the underbelly of
contemporary Havana—a world of easy sex, hard drinking
and humorous anecdote that will be all too recognizable to
the Gutiérrez connoisseur.
