“Fascinated by all things Cuban, I am particularly taken by the work of Dariel Suarez, a Cuban-born poet, novelist, playwright, who received a Pushcart Prize nomination in 2012. His work speaks to the memory of a homeland. His collection In the Land of Tropical Martyrs is a bridge to the landscape of childhood, made heavy by the weight of history. Cuba is not just geography; it is a place central to his voice, to his work, which is a journey to a place he takes us to again and again and shows us Cuba in all its beauty and ruin. And yes, it is, indeed, a journey worth taking.”
