A Cuban Summer

by Capra Press on May 25, 2013

Photographer/author Tony Mendoza has signed with Capra for his latest title, A Cuban Summer. Due to be released Summer/Fall 2013, this mesmerizing story set in pre-Castro Cuba, gives us a breathtaking portrait of the life of a fourteen-year-old boy born to a well-to-do family in the 1950’s as he comes of age. Funny, sexy and captivating, this beautifully crafted novel spins a riveting tale that takes us from the country club to the brothel with the backdrop of Havana’s warm beaches.

Mendoza published his first book with Capra Press in 1985, Ernie: A Photographer’s Memoir. He went on to author several photo books with accompanying text and this new title will be his first novel and it our immense pleasure to bring it out under our imprint.
