Havana: A Subtropical Delirium by Mark Kurlansky

Taking the pulse of multifaceted Havana, New York Times best-selling author of Cod and Salt, Mark Kurlansky, achieves an electrifying rhythm with his latest—an energetic and thoughtful travelogue he peppers with cultural history and poignant observations of a resurging colonial city. Included is a miscellany’s worth of material that coalesces into an extraordinary soup—a work that is, like the city at its heart, vibrantly alive. $26.00, Bloomsbury.com
