As the author is a daughter of exiled Cubans, I had high expectations for this book in terms of real emotions piercing through the text. She definitely delivered as even in the short amount of time the reader has with each character, you can almost feel for and with them.
Ana Menendez does a great job of connecting stories from what seem like random people in ways a reader has to search for. When the point of view switches between third and first person, the reader is able to see different sides of a character.
In the portions of the book where the narration is in first person, you can feel the emotions of the speaker and how the situations in Cuba are affecting what they go through every day. This difference is important throughout the individual narratives because each short story has a certain aspect of the bigger message it is trying to portray. In the first short story about the men playing dominoes, an interesting point is made about the Cuban and not Cuban feelings regarding Fidel Castro.
It almost seemed disrespectful to pretend to know what the Cubans were going through, which is a lesson in itself to readers sympathizing with other issues and situations that they do not have to deal with directly. Messages like these are common throughout the book and are important for the reader to pick up on, so if you do decide to read this book, I suggest reading while keeping this idea in mind to find the messages that could correlate to your daily life as well. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone looking to gain perspective. Oct 18, Shalyn rated it really liked it.
Your feedback will be reviewed. It caused quite a stir, culminating in a recent signing session at the local store. An expansion of the ongoing discussions on financial and tax matters could help to show that German investment in Cuba will occur only with the expansion of free spaces for civil society and the private sector.

This collection of short stories is all about life in Miami as a Cuban exile. Some characters make an appearance in more than one story, so the stories feel connected yet independent The overall feeling I got from the stories is that among the older generations that came to Miami to escape the revolution, there seems to be a kind of glamorization of life in Cuba before the revolution.
While they're mostly happy to be "free," they don't necessarily This collection of short stories is all about life in Miami as a Cuban exile. While they're mostly happy to be "free," they don't necessarily regain a sense of "home" or of belonging in the place they now live like they had in Cuba. In the final story, a woman born in Miami shortly after the revolution, after her parents fled Cuba, goes back to Cuba as a journalist to visit the plantation where her mother grew up, and she learns that her mother's memories are half-true at best but realizes that those memories are what sustains her mother's self-image and so she is reluctant to contradict or even question them when she returns.
It's a great culminating story for the collection. Each story is colorful and entertaining in it's own way, each depicting a different aspect of life in a land that is home even if it doesn't always feel that way, each speaking from a different perspective but with the same voice. I'm not usually a short story reader, but I enjoyed this collection. Menendez created a wonderful short story collection that helped me better understand the conflicts and concerns of Cuban immigrants and those who remain in Cuba.
Her stories deal with painful losses and separation, cultural misunderstandings, characters who transform and characters who are so traumatized by their experiences that they are unable to make the changes they need to make. Her most challenging story is "Miami Relatives" in which she relies on humans to represent different aspects of Menendez created a wonderful short story collection that helped me better understand the conflicts and concerns of Cuban immigrants and those who remain in Cuba.
Her most challenging story is "Miami Relatives" in which she relies on humans to represent different aspects of Cuba and the Cuban government, which might remind you of Animal Farm but Menendez is more opaque. My personal favorite was the first story, which shares the title of the book. Four old men gather almost daily to play dominoes in Domino Park; two are Cuban immigrants and two are Dominican. The Cubans fled Castro's regime, and one in particular feels the loss of status associated with losing his university job in Cuba to run a restaurant in Miami.
He reveals his pain through elaborate jokes with biting punchlines, which are both funny and horribly sad. Through the form of short stories tied to a central theme, Menendez helps underscore the splintered nature of the community that is living on two sides of the Caribbean. View 2 comments.

The writing in these stories is strong. The stories themselves cover all the bases of the Cuban-American experience, or at least the experience of those who were dispossessed by Fidel. The author does have an annoying habit of having her characters laugh or cry to signal that something was supposed to be funny or sad.
Pro tip: if you need to do that, then maybe your writing isn't so funny. Mar 18, Ana Maria rated it it was ok. The first short story is probably the best. I really wanted to like this book and thought it would be as entertaining as those of other writers of the Cuban immigrant story but I did not get them. I forced myself to finish to because I cannot leave a book unfinished.
Oct 16, Rocio Iglesias rated it really liked it. This book deals with nostalgia, identity, how to be yourself when you have left all the things behind that made you who you were. As a Cuban immigrant myself, this book touched me profoundly. But this book is for everyone. It is a thoughtful exploration; funny, philosophical, sad, and lovely. Dec 08, Kim rated it really liked it. This collection of short stories is what I love most about fiction that teaches you history and culture.
Menendez does a beautiful, striking job. Quotes that moved me: "He was plain and narrow like the thoughts of early morning when you can imagine your life as a long line of consequences, a simple fact. And then how terrible to wake when sleep is the thin blanket you wrap yourself in against your thoughts. Baseball here is for the old-timers, the politicians who still see a home run in each defection.
The game is too slow, too tame, and too quiet for these times. But I can understand all it meant to my father, a bastard, an immigrant's son. In the straight old lines of the game, he found a dynasty of players to belong to. Baseball gave him rules to master, a history to memorize. It sits like candy in a pretty bowl.

This collection of eleven short stories resonates with anyone who has had the unfortunate experience of having to leave their homeland and being separated from their families.
These sentiments are brought out quite well by the author, but after I read the first story, which is the title of the book, the following stories fell flat for me. I didn't find the cohesiveness of these stories as advertised on the book overview. Most of This collection of eleven short stories resonates with anyone who has had the unfortunate experience of having to leave their homeland and being separated from their families. Most of them were abstract and a little difficult to decipher.
On the other hand, I liked the way Ms. She has a natural ability to create great imagery from the mundane. It proves that the author can write stories full of wisdom and clarity.

A collection of stories based on Cuban exiles in Miami. Though these type of Cuban exile stories usually focus on politics, these choose to deal with the impact produced by separation, loss, melancholy and longing for the homeland. Beautifully written from the perspective of a second generation Cuban American the author manages to handle this material with humor, poetry and beautiful imagery.

At times abstract and others straight forward which gives each story in the collection a sense of uniqueness when they are connected by the same themes.
I particularly liked the first and last stories, having grown with a Cuban stepfather who fought in Bay of Pigs, these stripes resonated with me. I remember going to the park looking for abuelo and he would be playing dominoes with other expatriates and having the same conversations as the characters in the first story. I also remember hearing family gatherings in which people would talk about what the had left in Cuba or was stolen by Fidel, while being contradicted by others who saw things in a different light.
Thought the book deals with Cubans and their plight, anyone can relate to the stories and themes herein. Jan 10, bookczuk rated it really liked it Shelves: bookcrossing , great-title. An interesting collection of stories focusing on exiles from Cuba. Not too long ago, I read a somewhat so-so novel that had a great deal about Miami in the time of Castro's rise to power in Cuba. While the novel itself didn't enchant me, the glimpse of the emigres did, as did the portal into Miami before it became the Miami I know.
This book was a tasty follow-up to that, that I actually liked much more than the main course.
