In his celebrated “Havana Quartet,” Leonardo Padura’s series of novels featuring Mario Condo, a hard-boiled private detective, the city itself, described as “a geography of human failings” by The New Yorker, is a major character worth exploring and experiencing in its own right. But Padura, one of Cuba’s best-known writers, whose books’ dynamic host of characters include Leon Trotsky and Ernest Hemingway, also chronicles the country as it lurched from the Fidel Castro era to present-day quasi capitalism. Padura talks about his country and the city he has made his own.
