The celebrated Cuban American poet and novelist offers “a fine portrait of a hedonist and a cad” set in “the Cuban, expatriate community in Florida” (The New York Times). Pablo Medina’s The Cigar Roller recounts the life of Cuban master cigar roller Amadeo Terra. A proud and capricious man, tobacco has been the center of his life, the source of his passion. Though he committed many sins in his time, he was always forgiven due to his considerable talents with the leaves. An imperious patriarch of enormous appetites, Amadeo now lies in a Florida hospital after suffering a stroke. And only now does he finally look back at his previously unexamined life. One day, his nurse feeds him mango from a baby-food jar—a change from the tasteless mush he frequently rejects—and the taste brings memories of his life in Havana flooding back to him. He recalls his turbulent, passionate relationship with his wife Julia, his numerous romantic transgressions, the three sons he’s kept at a distance, the political strife that forced his family to relocate from Cuba to Florida, and finally the tragedy that he’s kept locked away all these years. The Cigar Roller is “an evocative snapshot of an era gone up in smoke,” and a portrait of a once robust man who, at the end of his imperfect life, clamors for a quotient of dignity and grace as he comes to terms with his regrets (Detroit Free Press).

"Following the release of his latest movie, Orson Welles - renowned director and smoking aficionado - receives a celebratory box of cigars. As he indulges his habit, Welles comes to realise exactly what he's smoking: the final creations of Conchita Marquez, Cuba's finest cigar roller. Ranging from the heyday of the cigar industry to the glamorous heights of Hollywood's Golden Age, The Cigar that Fell in Love with a Pipe inventively combines romance, history, imagination and nicotine to ask the burning question: can love triumph over adversity, or does it all go up in smoke?" -- from publisher's web site.

During a family gathering, eighty-two year old Norman Cohen becomes incensed. A causal remark about his father releases long repressed memories. For the first time Norman realizes the extent of his parents’ lengthy mistreatment of himself, their oldest son. He slips into depression. To salve his anguish and eventually find redemption, he crafts with brutal honesty a memoir that his son edits. The end product is a kaleidoscope of family history reaching back to the nineteenth century immigrants who settle in a small Pennsylvania town in the low-end neighborhood of Chicken Hill. Three generations of Jewish life are vividly portrayed in this gripping narrative. Led by the family patriarch, the first generation of greenhorn immigrants launch new lives in a strange English-speaking Christian world devoid of Jewish institutions and so unlike that of the Galician shtetl. The second generation is generally successful in both business and professions with the exception of the eldest daughter and her hapless husband. Their son Norman, the first child of the third generation, puts aside his own college ambitions. He dutifully assists in the family enterprise, a shoe store. There is a Depression, after all, and family finances are tight, right? But Norman does not understand. Why does his mother treat him so poorly? What is the true basis for his quashed dreams?

An extraordinarily beautiful mixed-race woman travels through the 1930s from the Prohibition era to the dawn of World War II, moving from domestic servant to mistress of a wealthy industrialist and on to a loving relationship with maestro George Gershwin while he completes the operatic masterpiece “Porgy and Bess.” Filled with the history of Tampa’s exotic Ybor City, the home of Cuban culture in America, readers are introduced to the place and the people that produced legendary handmade clear Havana cigars for a half century. The novel also provides a perspective on the awakening of America’s sexuality, glamorous old Havana, the post-Prohibition rise of organized crime and the historic uncertainties of Cuban-American relations.
