The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love is a Pulitzer
Prize-winning contemporary American classic, a book that
still captivates and inspires readers twenty years after its
first publication. Now, in Beautiful Maria of My Soul, Oscar
Hijuelos returns to this indelible story, to tell it from
the point of view of its beloved heroine, Maria. She's the
great Cuban beauty who stole musician Nestor Castillo's
heart and broke it, inspiring him to write the Mambo Kings'
biggest hit, ''Beautiful Maria of My Soul.'' Now in her
sixties and living in Miami with her pediatrician daughter,
Teresa, Maria remains a beauty, still capable of turning
heads. But she has never forgotten Nestor, and as she thinks
back to her days--and nights--in Havana, an entirely new
perspective on the Mambo Kings story unfolds.
