Carlos Acosta has written a novel, set in Cuba, and includes a section set duing the 1950s revolution. It will be published by Bloomsbury in 2013.
Bill Swainson, senior commissioning editor at Bloomsbury, described Acosta’s fiction debut as “a bold, earthy and imaginative novel, packed with wonderful characters and the sights, sounds and smells of the island, reports The Guardian.
“It has extraordinary twists of plot, fascinating insights into Cuba’s history, and is written in a voice that is warm, funny, intimate and convincing. Carlos Acosta has a real gift.”
