This book of accessible poems not only shows what it feels like to be a Cuban American but probes beneath the memories of white Cuban beaches and finds the spirit of the exile experience.
Suarez's mini-memoirs read like a photo album of verse, one which seems instantly familiar. . . . The accessibility of these poems should make them attractive to After Night Falls
fans and others looking for representations of Cuba.
Poignant, vividly descriptive poems that capture the longing, regret, resignation, and identity-quest characteristic of the vast number of immigrant who have mixed emotions about their exile from their homeland.
