Featuring the intimate correspondence of a brother to his sister living in exile, Letters to Eloisa tells the story of Cuban literary genius and poet Jose Lezama Lima. Much of his writing contained homoerotic content, placing him on a direct collision course with the Cuban revolutionary government at odds with his writings and his homosexuality. Part biography and part cultural history, Letters to Eloisa traces Lezama’s rise as a literary figure in Cuba and his tragic end, alone and silenced in his Havana home as well as the quiet impact he had had on the GLBT movement in the country.
