Musician brothers, Cesar and Nestor, leave Cuba for America in the 1950s, with the hopes of making it to the top of the Latin music scene.

While I enjoyed the culture, I found this book overrated. Got very tired of all the gratuitous sex--blech.

How is it that the NYPL has only one copy of The Mambo Kings by the first Hispanic, Oscar Hijuelos, to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and that one copy cannot be lent? What have you done with the multi-million dollar contributions? Surely not promote books.
