Comments about the book:
“The five plays that appear in this fifth volume of theatrical plays (Adagio | Un lugar para vivir | La ruta de las mariposas | El parque de las palomas | El viento que pasa) ─Cubans in their circumstances─they are not meant to have social or historical inferences… The author considers himself to be heir of an uncertain time which he has been unable and unwilling to break from.”
