Karla Suárez: Trouble in Havana

Winner of a clutch of European awards, Havana Year Zero by Karla Suárez is a spirited story set amidst Cuba’s most desperate period. Depressed by the recession, maths lecturer Julia comes up with a plan – to prove that Cuba is the birthplace of the telephone. But she soon encounters more than she’d bargained for in a comedy of errors peopled by characters struggling to survive. Suárez introduces her atmospheric, genre-defying novel in this talk with Daniel Hahn.
