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).

She has written extensively about Cuba for Vanity Fair, Conde Nast Traveler, the New Republic, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and other publications. She lives in Carpinteria, California.
