The Write Way Home: A Cuban-American Story, a poetic tale of self-discovery, is the autobiography of Emilio Bejel, a prominent Cuban-American poet and literary critic. Employing a unique blend of poetry, prose, and documentary sources, it recounts the author's life from childhood in pre-revolutionary Cuba to later experiences as an exile over the span of three decades in the United States. Memory and imagination commingle to depict the moments, places, and people that have marked his life. This text stands out due to its unique perspective, that of a gay Cuban-American writer whose politics simply don't fit neatly into the mainstream exile community's world view.
