My Father Sings to My Embarrassment Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
Selected by Cornelius Eady, these poems reflect the experience of leaving her Cuban homeland on the last of the Johnson administration's Freedom Flights and building a new life in the United States. "...the landscape of loss and gain we call exile, seen through the poet's sharp eye and described in a voice that never wavers from the truth.
I felt I was re-encountering Cuba in the light of new imagining, freed of ideology and therefore resplendent and complete." --Pablo Medina
