Next Year in Cuba by Gustavo Perez-Firmat

Gustavo Perez Firmat arrived in America with his family at the age of eleven. Victims of Castros revolution, the Perez family put their life on hold, waiting for Castros fall. Each Christmas, along with other Cuban families in the neighborhood, they celebrated with the cry, Next Year in Cuba. Growing up in the Dade County school system and graduating from college in Florida, Perez Firmat was insulated from America by the nurturing sights and sounds of Little Havana. But gradually, as the Cuba of his birth receded farther into the past, he had become no longer wholly cubano, but increasingly a man of two heritages and two countries. In a searing memoir of a family torn apart by exile, Perez Firmat chronicles the painful search for roots that has come to dominate his adult life. With one brother beset by personal problems and another embracing the very revolution that drove their family out of Cuba, Gustavo realized that the words Next Year in Cuba had, for him, taken on a hollow ring. Now, married to an American woman, and father to two children who are Cuban in name only, Perez Firmat has finally come to acknowledge his need to celebrate his love of Cuba, while embracing the America he has come to cherish.
