RARA-AVIS: Re: RARA-AVIS HB Historical and Cuba

From: Anderson, Erick (Adecco ETW) ( Erick.Anderson@nike.com)

I'm finally starting to outline a long-considered HB story placed in Batista-era Cuba, focusing on factions warring for control of gambling and other mob interests, on the cusp of the (Castro-led) revolution. (I'm seeing it as loose sort of an updating and _noir-icizing_ of The Three Musketeers.) I've read recent postings and look forward (with relish) to reading Jose Latour, et.al., but I'm wondering if other Rara-Avians have suggestions for non-fiction sources for research purposes (esp. on-line), and other Latino fiction authors they would recommend relative to understanding the atmospherics of the period. Thanks in advance. Best Regards, Erick
