The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love

The Mambo Kings Play Songs Of Love - Oscar Hijuelos I read this back in 2001. I barely got through it since I was between comps. and transferring to library school. It was my first foray into Hijuelos's works, and I enjoyed very much. My impression back then: >>This is a novel heavy on nostalgia and memory where I could almost hear the music and feel the passion of the characters.
