The Color of Summer, Or, The New Garden of Earthly DelightsBook - 2000
The Color of Summer is the fourth novel in Reinaldo Arenas' quintet (or "Pentagonia" as he called it), which includes Singing from the Well, The Palace of the White Skunks, Farewell to the Sea, and The Assault. (Although The Assault is the final volume in the series, Arenas finished it before The Color of Summer, and was therefore published first.) In the Pentagonia, Arenas envisioned creating a series of novels that would be, at once a phantasmagoric recreation of Cuba's extraordinary history and a highly unusual writer's autobiography.
