From the Back Cover:

"Al partir", novela historica y testimonial, nos presenta a una de las verdaderas heroinas de la lucha del siglo XIX por la independencia de Cuba. La modesta y diminuta Evangelina Cossio protagoniza una serie de aventuras llenas de peligro y suspenso que nos llevaran al desenlace que augurara el destino para muchos cubanos a traves de todo el siglo XX. Entre las figuras gigantescas de Marti y Maceo, surge nuestra humilde heroina para encarnar el espiritu rebelde y justiciero de todo cubano, todo latinoamericano.

Omar Torres es poeta, dramaturgo y novelista, nacido en Victoria de las Tunas en 1945, que ha creado y publicado todas sus obras en los Estados Unidos: "Conversacion primera", 1975; "Ecos de un laberinto", 1976; "Tiempo robado", 1979; "Apenas un bolero", 1981. Segun el critico chileno Alberto Baezo Flores, el estilo de Torres es "personal, intenso, apretado, vivido hasta los huracanes del ser y el existir; estilo que amarra, retiene, apasiona y testifica..."
