The seventeen stories in this volume-some of which appear in English for the first time-will take you on an odyssey through the country's rich past to its dynamic present, where it is poised at the brink of immense change. Arranged by the areas of Cuba they illuminate, these stories offer up a rich literary banquet. Included is a piece by Reinaldo Arenas of Before Night Falls fame (now a major motion picture).
