Jos Alvarez, in Contestatory Cuban Short Story of the Revolution, presents a unique analysis of counter-cultural narratives written in Cuba. Because the short story, to a great extent, never ceases to be a marginal production, Alvarez approaches the Cuban short story with the rigor of contemporary cultural studies, which involves the theoretical imperative of examining cultural production as an ideological reading of the sociopolitical context in which it occurs and in which it is distributed, consumed, and interpreted. This book complements other books written about the works of Reinaldo Arenas, Jose Lezama Lima, Virgilio Pinera and others.
