In The Island of Eternal Love, Cuban author Daína Chaviano combines history, fantasy and romance to narrate the history of three of Cuba’s major ethnic groups: Africans, Spanish and Chinese. Originally published in Spanish in 2006, The Island of Eternal Love is the first of Chaviano’s novels to be translated into English. Besides this English translation, the work has also appeared in over twenty other languages, including Mandarin Chinese, making it the most translated Cuban novel in history.
