This U.S. version of a groundbreaking 1996 Cuban anthology unites sixteen stories into an impressive collection that reveals the exciting strength and variety of fiction by contemporary Cuban women.
"Reading these Cuban women writers . . . we too feel esa esencia Cubana that can't be translated into English or Spanish but is a place in the imagination we reach in the work of the best storytellers."
Julia Alvarez, author of How the García Girls Lost Their Accents
