"Mi novio preferida fue un bulldog francés" is a collection of interconnected short stories that explore contradictions in old and new Cuba, where politics, culture, family, love, sex, and bureaucracy intermingle. The characters include a woman murdered by her husband after an episode of infidelity, a girl who suffers from a sexually transmitted disease, a dog that tells the life of its owner, especially his love affairs and breakups. Each of them struggles to escape from the limitations that their life poses: all of their secrets and lies, omnipresent violence, undiagnosed and unbearable pain, and the fear of being object of a revenge.
