Dreaming In CubanBy Cristina Garcia
Dreaming in Cuban is the moving story of three generations of women whose ties to Cuba simultaneously draw them closer together while forcing them apart. Haunted by family secrets and longing for the comforts of home, each of the women struggles to come to terms with her true identity - wife, mother, daughter, infidel, patriot, lover, and friend. Torn apart by years of familial and political unrest, each character shares her own personal take on the struggles in Cuba, the shortcomings in her own life and, inevitably, her feelings toward the other women. A poetic blend of humor and surrealism, Dreaming in Cuban is about the meaning of home and heart, love and hate, and, ultimately, what happens when a broken family tries to rebuild itself.
