About this title


A thirty-year journey spent in search of a home and an identity culminates in Gustavo Perez Firmat's compelling chronicle.

From the Back Cover:

Una jornada de treinta anos en busca de un hogar y una identidad culminan en la vibrante cronica de Gustavo Perez-Firmat "El ano que viene estamos en Cuba". Atrapado entra la cultura de la Pequena Habana y la del panorama norteamericano, el joven Perez Firmat se balancea a horeajadas entre mundos, tratando de reconciliar sus raices cubanas con las tradiciones de su hogar adoptivo. Su busqueda durante tres decadas lo llevan de un acto precario de balaceo entre dos culturas, dos lenguas, dos naciones, a una "fusion de persona y lugar", una aceptacion de su dualidad y sus implicaciones.

Exilado en los Estados Unidos a la edad de once anos, Perez Firmat y su familia huyen del regimen comunista con la absoluta creencia de que Castro seria prontamente derrocado. Solo pasarian unas semanas y su mundo volveria a la normalidad y la calma. Aun cuando las semanas se fueron convertiendo en meses, y los meses en anos, sus esperanzas nunca menguaron. Al pasar los anos, las familias de la Pequena Habana se reunian para despedir el ano con un brindis: "El ano que viene estamos en Cuba".
