Summary (From the publisher):

Juani Casas is obsessed with memory. Having escaped from Cuba to the United States with her irresistibly imperfect family, she is fixated on extracting the truth of her life from the nostalgic mythology of exile. Surrounded by a chorus of cousins - blood cousins and "cousins in exile" - Juani, a twenty-four-year-old lesbian, struggles with violence, desire and the meaning of love. Memory Mambo insists on the truth, which in the hands of Achy Obejas is dark, witty and haunting in its complexity.
