Three Trapped Tigers by Guillermo Cabrera Infante offers a rich insight into the hedonistic pre-revolution Cuba. This English version still captures the beauty of the language Infante uses.

And if you want to uplift your spirit, then you should also read this book. Soon to be published in English.

This Is Cuba: An Outlaw Culture Survives. A very insightful book but I found the storytelling a bit laboured in parts. That said I'd really recommend it for the detailed insight into the real Cuba.
