Zoe Valdés (La Habana, 1959) Escritora cubana

EIRE: It's quite possible that there is a generational difference in two ways. Not just the older exiles of the children and grandchildren, but also the recent arrivals. They have a completely different view of things because many of them, if not most of them, were born after Castro took over and they have no memory of the previous Cuba. I had a very interesting meeting with a group of Cuban exiles in Paris about 10 years ago. All but one in this fairly large group had been born after Fidel Castro took over. And the conversation reached a point where I thought I was at some Baptist church meeting where everyone was relating their conversion experience. And one by one, they went around the room and spoke about how they woke up to the fact that everything they had been taught at school was a lie. One of them was Zoe Valdes, a well-recognized Cuban author. Her turning-point was that she had won a prize in Europe for one of her novels and when she came back, the government took her prize. That was her conversion experience (laughter).

Pese al éxito de su narrativa, la escritora cubana se había iniciado en la actividad literaria como poeta. La poesía de Zoe Valdés se caracteriza por el erotismo, la sensualidad y por el recurso a la idea del deseo y del paso del tiempo.
