Beginning with her Estatuas de sal (edited with Marilyn Bobes), Mirta Yáñez has made us (some of us willingly, others not) realize the quantity and quality of Cuban women’s writings. Cubana is a welcomed addition to the still slim shelves of Caribbean women’s writings in translation.–Daisy Cocco De Filippis, editor of Dominicanas and Friends

Mirta Yáñez was formerly associate professor of Latin American literature at the University of Havana. She is the author of ten books of fiction, poetry, and criticism. Ruth Behar’s most recent book is The Vulnerable Observer. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Dick Cluster is a novelist and translator, most recently, of Alejandro Hernández Díaz’s The Cuban Mile.
