I was at the Chicago book convention [ABA], and I am not going to name names, but this is how people are in New York. I met some newspaper editors from New York and was introduced to this guy who runs a line of biographies, short biographies. I was making small talk and I say, “You really ought to do one of those biographies of Jose Marti.” I was thinking that Cabrera Infante should write it. Because he writes so brilliantly about Marti. He’s a Marti maniac like me. And the guy turns up his nose, “Marti is not of the stature to merit a biography.”
Yeah, okay. I’d like to see that guy stand out on Calle Ocho in Miami and say that again.
