A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket; a novel by the noted Cuban poet, novelist, and playwright whose writings and openly gay life brought him into conflict with the Cuban government. He was imprisoned, escaped, tried to flee Cuba, was captured and reimprisoned, and, in 1980, fled Cuba as part of the Mariel Boatlift. "The Assault" final work in the author's highly-regarded semi-autobiographical Pentagonia series, a set of five novels that comprise a "secret history" of post-revolutionary Cuba ["Singing from the Well", "Farewell to the Sea", "Palace of the White Skunks", "Color of Summer", and "The Assault"]. In his Memoir/Autobiography "Before Night Falls", Arenas notes that he had to rewrite the works many times as manuscripts were lost, destroyed and/or confiscated by the Cuban authorities. A Fine copy.
