Summary: El exilio es una de las penurias m�s crueles que los reg�menes totalitarios de todas las �pocas, lugares y tendencias pol�ticas han impuesto a quienes, escapando del horror y la represi�n, han debido abandonar su pa�s de origen para buscar refugio en una naci�n extranjera. El protagonista de esta intensa novela es un muchacho cubano que llega como exiliado a los Estados Unidos y consigue un trabajo como portero de un exclusivo edificio de Manhattan.
