Poets and journalists offer their responses, from Allen Ginsberg and Jayne Cortez to Alma Guillermoprieto and Robert Stone- and novelists weigh in with such fictional portrayals as Elmore Leonard's Cuba Libre and Pico Iyer's" "Cuba and the Night." "Cuban exiles, immigrants, and their offspring provide their unique perspective, from Cristina Garcia's essay "Simple Life" to excerpts from Oscar Hijuelos's novel The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love and from Carlos Eire's memoir Waiting for Snow in Havana." "Embracing salsa and santeria, politics and baseball, the island's sparkling beaches and the teeming Havana streets, Cuba in Mind captures the vibrancy, the contradictions, the heat and the humor of Cuba as shown by some of the best writers in the English language.
