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.”
Graham Spicer is a writer, director and photographer in Milan, blogging (under the name ‘Gramilano’) about dance, opera, music and photography for people “who are a bit like me and like some of the things I like”. He was a regular columnist for Opera Now magazine and wrote for the BBC until transferring to Italy.
His scribblings have appeared in various publications from Woman’s Weekly to Gay Times, and he wrote the ‘Danza in Italia’ column for Dancing Times magazine.
