The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love

Oscar Hijuelos, Author Harper Perennial $13 (407p) ISBN 978-0-06-097327-8
The Mambo Kings are two brothers, Cesar and Nestor Castillo, Cuban-born musicians who immigrate to New York City in 1949. They form a band and enjoy modest success, their popularity peaking in 1956 with a guest appearance on the I Love Lucy show. PW lauded this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel: ``Hijuelos's pure storytelling skills commission every incident with a life and breath of its own.'' (Aug.)
