Description

This anthology showcases the work of leading Cuban and American writers and photographers and offers an insight into life in the island nation today. While the world ponders Cuba's future and the United States weighs the effects of the trade embargo imposed more than 40 years ago, Cubans go about their everyday lives overcoming obstacles with a mixture of ingenuity, intelligence, perseverence and, above all else, a sense of humour. The book aims to be an honest and balanced portrayal of the complex realities of modern Cuban life. Essays and portfolios of images are linked to central themes including music, sexuality, architecture, Afro-Cuban culture, rural life and the role of women. The introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Kennedy, titled "Going to Cuba?", sets the stage for an array of visions and voices. An epilogue by playwright Arthur Miller, titled "Castro", concludes the book.
