9780007111619: Outcast

A smart, multi-voiced, savagely unsentimental Cuban crime novel combining cultural critique, personal discovery and explosive violence.

Elliot Steil, the son of a Cuban mother and a U.S. labourer stationed on the island before the revolution, works as a down-and-out school teacher in Havana. Quietly resigned to the tedium of his simple life, Elliot, like many of his fellow Havanans, has put any hopes of a better future to one side. But his aspirations are rekindled when he is offered a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity by a mysterious visitor to the island who claims to have known his father.

Persuaded to leave Cuba, Elliot finds himself involved in something much more dangerous and complex than he could ever have imagined. He embarks on a search that will draw him deep into the deceit and corruption of the Miami underworld, forcing him to confront a past he has spent most of his adult life trying to forget.
