Cuba On The Verge Summary

Cuba On The Verge: An Island in Transition by Terry L. McCoy

This anthology showcases the work of leading Cuban and American writers and photographers and offers an insight into life in the island nation today. While the world ponders Cuba's future and the United States weighs the effects of the trade embargo imposed more than 40 years ago, Cubans go about their everyday lives overcoming obstacles with a mixture of ingenuity, intelligence, perseverence and, above all else, a sense of humour. The book aims to be an honest and balanced portrayal of the complex realities of modern Cuban life. Essays and portfolios of images are linked to central themes including music, sexuality, architecture, Afro-Cuban culture, rural life and the role of women. The introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Kennedy, titled "Going to Cuba?", sets the stage for an array of visions and voices. An epilogue by playwright Arthur Miller, titled "Castro", concludes the book.

Cuba On The Verge Reviews

..".a collection of photographic images of great subtlety and power that make time visible through ruins and flesh, and, together with the wise, often confessional insights of its writers, suggest the saddening scope of lost life in Cuba. If the book reflects life in a highly charged political time, it does so without the virulent rhetoric of political warfare. Its editor, Terry McCoy, has with great skill assembled a most original body of work that stands, instead, as a collective revelation to the world of the consequence of politics to Cuba."
