It is homage to the memories kept alive by his family. The fragmented and reconstructed anecdotes create a sense of belonging and unconditional love that comes to life, as in a soap opera unfolding tragic-comic, but always inspiring and uplifting feelings. The memories have been filtered through the lens of the authors eye who does not recount chronological instances of his life in Cuba. He rather recollects and retells the emotions that stem from those circumstances in which a familys struggle to survive and preserve its own identity, triumphs despite all odds- even during geographical and emotional separation as well as political and ideological restrains. The Cuba of Orlando Ferrands childhood years is an autonomous island floating in a myriad of remembrances. A place that has the imprint of a magic realm, instead of the tangible topography of the Caribbean island.
