This fascinating book presents a whirling, free-associating history of the cigar, beginning with the discovery of America by Columbus in 1492. Columbus sent Rodrigo de Xeres inland to prospect for gold; he came back with tales of men who think they are chimneys: men who smoke, using a brown tube burning on one end. Here Guillermo Cabrera Infante describes the history of cigars in the Caribbean & the process of making cigars by hand in Cuba; & the history, customs & popularity of cigar-smoking in America & Europe. He also includes poems & passages from literary works that describe cigar smoking by famous authors, such as Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce, Colette, & John O'Hara.

New York. 1986. February 1986. Harper & Row. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN: 0060154322. 329 pages. hardcover. Photograph by Ted Allan, the Kobal Collection. Jacket design by Pentagram. FROM THE PUBLISHER - When Columbus first came across tobacco in Cuba he was unimpressed. He was looking for gold, not smoke. How could he know that tobacco would become the multimillion-dollar business that it is today? And that the island of Cuba was destined to produce the best cigars in the world (although so-called Havanas were never actually cultivated in Havana!). HOLY SMOKE, by the author of THREE TRAPPED TIGERS and INFANTE’S INFERNO, is the outrageous and informative story of the cigar and of those who have smoked it - in all walks of life, in literature, and in film. Cabrera Infante tells the story of cigars and cigar smoking from Columbus to Castro (who used to mooch cigars off the author) with many delightful detours along the way via Sherlock Holmes, Groucho Marx, Mark Twain, Marilyn Monroe, Oscar Wilde, Orson Welles, James Thurber, George Sand, Humphrey Bogart, W C. Fields, Marlene Dietrich, Robinson Crusoe, Colette and many others. Cabrera Lnfante describes in detail the way cigars are made, the different kinds of cigars, the history of tobacco, and the manners and mores of cigar smoking. This incredible cigar chronicle is the funniest, most original tribute to the cigar that has ever been written. ‘Mr. Infante, who writes admirable English by the way, gives us the whole story of the weed, technical and cultural, and does not disdain the cigarette. The cigarette, after all, is what you smoke between smokes. About pipes he is not so sure.’ - Anthony Burgess, The Observer. Guillermo Cabrera Infante (April 22, 1929 - February 21, 2005) was a Cuban novelist, essayist, translator, and critic; in the 1950s he used the pseudonym G. Caín. A one-time supporter of the Castro regime, Cabrera Infante went into exile to London in 1965. He is best known for the novel Tres Tristes Tigres (literally ‘three sad tigers’, but published in English as Three Trapped Tigers), which has been compared favorably to James Joyce’s Ulysses. Born in Gibara in Cuba’s former Oriente Province (now part of Holguín Province), in 1941 he moved with his parents, to Havana, which would be the setting of nearly all of his writings other than his critical works. His parents were founding members of the Cuban Communist Party. Originally he intended to become a physician, but abandoned that in favor of writing and his passion for the cinema. Starting in 1950, he studied journalism at the University of Havana. In 1951 he founded the Cinemateca de Cuba, the Cuban Film Library, of which he remained director until its closure was ordered by Fulgencio Batista in 1956.[1] Under the Batista regime he was arrested and fined in 1952 for publishing a short story which included several English-language profanities. His opposition to Batista later cost him a short jail term. He married for the first time in 1953. From 1954 to 1960 he wrote film reviews for the magazine Carteles, using the pseudonym G. Caín; he became its editor in chief, still pseudonymously, in 1957. With the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959 he was named director of the Instituto del Cine. He was also head of the literary magazine Lunes de Revolución, a supplement to the Communist newspaper Revolución; however, this supplement was prohibited in 1961 by Fidel Castro. He divorced and remarried in 1961 to his second wife, Miriam, an actress. Having fallen somewhat out of favor with the Castro regime (the government’s ban on a documentary on Havana nightlife made by his brother led to him being forbidden to publish in Cuba), he served from 1962 to 1965 in Brussels, Belgium as a cultural attaché. During this time, his sentiments turned against the Castro regime; after returning to Cuba for his mother’s funeral in 1965, he went into exile, first to Madrid and then to London. In 1966 he published Tres Tristes Tigres, a highly experimental, Joycean novel, playful and rich in literary allusions, which also intended to do for Cuban Spanish what Mark Twain had done for American English, recording the great variety of its colloquial variations. It is little known that he was the Guillermo Caín who co-wrote the script for the 1971 cult film Vanishing Point. Although he is considered a part of the famed Latin American ‘Boom’ generation of writers that includes his contemporary Gabriel García Márquez, he disdained the label. Always the iconoclast, he even rejected the label ‘novel’ for his masterpieces, such as Tres Tristes Tigres and La Habana para un infante difunto. In 1997 he received the Premio Cervantes, presented to him by Spain’s King Juan Carlos. He died February 21, 2005 in London, of septicemia. He had two daughters by his first marriage. inventory #7550 ISBN: 0060154322.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good LifeThe Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A…
#1 New York Times BestsellerOver 3 million copies soldIn this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the OddsCan't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds
For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America. In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.
