"The number of magazines increased with the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. The first, and the most important one, was Lunes de Revolución, the literary supplement of Revolución, the official newspaper of the July 26 Movement that brought Fidel Castro to power. Distributed on Mondays with Revolución, Lunes de Revolución was the most widely read literary supplement in the history of Cuban and Latin American literatures. The newspaper was edited by one of Castro’s advisors, Carlos Franqui, and the supplement by Guillermo Cabrera Infante and assistant editor Pablo Armando Fernández. Lunes was in print for two and one-half years, from March 23, 1959, to November 6, 1961, expanding from the first issue of six pages to the last issue of 64 pages. It started with a circulation of 100,000 and surpassed 250,000, greater than other comparable publications of larger countries, including the U.S.’s New York Review of Books." (Page 254)
