Contemporary Fiction from Cuba This anthology brings together writers from both before and after the Cuban Revolution, joining those still living in Cuba with those in exile. Works by well-kwn authors sit alongside those by lesser-kwn voices and together they illustrate that Cuban fiction embraces the entirety of human experience and that the country's strong storytelling tradition transcends the constraints of history to express Cuba's diverse cultural legacies.
