Biography

Novelist whose writing chronicles the pre-Castro Cuban immigrant experience in the United States, particularly in New York. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literaturemore

Collecting tips:

His first book, Our House in the Last Work (1983) was published by Persea, and reportedly received little support from the publisher. Hijuelos worked tirelessly to promote the book, which is why signed copies are not rare. His second book, The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love (1989) won the Pulitzer Prize. Neither of these books are particularly expensive.more
