Beantown Cubans

by Johnny Diaz - £10.99  Kensington Publishing (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780758234254 | ISBN 10: 0758234252

From the acclaimed author of Miami Manhunt and Boston Boys Club, comes a witty, new, warmhearted novel of friendship, familia, and finding a place to call home — even in a city where it’s almost impossible to get an authentic Cuban sandwich...
 
Carlos Martin is twenty-seven years old and ready for a change. Cuban-born and Miami-raised, the cute but slightly awkward high school teacher figures that Boston is about as far from the crazy South Beach social scene as he could get — and a way to escape the bittersweet reminders of his recently departed mother. Life in “Beantown” is quite a culture shock — until Carlos meets Tommy Perez, another Miami transplant who quickly shows him the ropes. Now, in the course of one wildly unpredictable year, Carlos is going to learn to embrace his newfound independence, as well as his individuality...
