Publisher Description:
Fiction. Latino/ Latina Studies.The story of a family's saga from Cuba to the other America, Herrera's novel spans the waning years of Cuba's post-plantation, pre-Revolutionary period to the present. "This is a rare novel - a quest for origin and legitimacy, exquisitely written in language that draws on the mysterious forces of continuity and renewal. Moving across time and space, it is the reconstruction of an unfinished world, a way of life that was lost . . . until we are candidly and painfully brought to the present time. It is a luminous celebration of the Island's contrapuntal facets: its sensuous, ever-present physical beauty, alongside the cruelty and violence that resulted in a shattering of the old order" - Lourdes Gil, author of Empieza la ciudad.
