Roberto Luque Escalona was born in Holguin, Cuba, and studied in the UNAM (México) and University of Havana. A participant in the revolution against Batista and the opposition of Castro’s regime he is currently a journalist with several published books, among them: Yo, el mejor de todos (biography of Ernesto Guevara), and the novelas: Bonpland #8 and Lorenzo y el Cordero del Diablo.

The author explain his book: «Persons, events, objects, institutions: nothing has escaped the Cuban inclination towards myths. Rolando Masferrer, written up by many as a murderer, but without proof of any killings, was labeled a gangster and a member of a revolutionary group –without revolution. As a main character in a Republic that today is desired but which was in the past detested…no one better than he to be an involuntary emblem for that tendency which has been the greatest reason for the failure of the Cuban nation». In addition to the figure of Masferrer the book refers to other myths from the mambises, the pimp Yarini, Mella, Mañach, Guiteras, the trigger happy, Cayo Confites, Grau, Chibas, Quevedo of Bohemia, Pardo Llada and many others. A transgressor and controversial book.
