Written by Giselle Balido, a renowned Cuban-American writer, and photographed by the award-winning Carlos Guerrero, the exuberant CubanTime shows the amazing achievements of the Cuban exile community.Essentially nonpolitical, this account describes with joy and pride a vibrant exile population of more than 1.5 million people who have succeeded in re-creating the Cuban experience in a free country.Striking photographs present Cuban cooking, celebrations, traditions, pastimes, sports (especially baseball!), music and dance, literature and the arts, entertainment and nightlife. Firsthand, poignant stories told by Cubans young and old make this extra-special- not only does it cover the lives of ordinary people, but also celebrities like Gloria Estefan, Andy Garcia, El Duque, Jose Canseco, and Celia Cruz. And the bilingual text allows English and Spanish speakers in a household to enjoy it equally.In every sense, CubanTime commemorates the vital importance of freedom in the lives of Cuban exiles, and the need to keep Cuban culture alive and well. Published at just the right time for the exile community, it will be read with great interest by Cuban Americans.and by everyone fascinated to learn more about their friends and neighbors.
