While I enjoyed the culture, I found this book overrated. Got very tired of all the gratuitous sex--blech.

How is it that the NYPL has only one copy of The Mambo Kings by the first Hispanic, Oscar Hijuelos, to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and that one copy cannot be lent? What have you done with the multi-million dollar contributions? Surely not promote books.
