On June 10, the renamed Princess of Asturias foundation announced its 2015 winner in the literature category, the Cuban author Leonardo Padura.
This blogger counts Herejes [Heretics, 2013; publisher’s summary] by Leonardo Padura (Havana, 1955; Wikipedia) among his best reading experiences of the last year, though it could have been somewhat shorter as a lot of amazon reader reviews remark correctly. Padura is a good storyteller and additionally introduces his readers to the realities of life in contemporary Cuba.
Talking about contemporary Cuba, El País in English published this article on June 12.
