    “A subtle yet striking collection of sepia-like photographs depicting life in Cuba, coupled with the perceptive observations of a Cuban exile returning home.” —Miami HeraldImagine being unable to return to your homeland for thirty-six years. What would you do if you finally got a chance to go back?In 1996, after travel restrictions between the United States and Cuba were relaxed, Cuban exile Tony Mendoza answered that question. Taking his cameras, notebooks, and an unquenchable curiosity, he returned for his first visit to Cuba since the summer of 1960, when he emigrated with his family at age eighteen. In this book he presents over eighty evocative photographs accompanied by a beautifully written text that mingles the voices of many Cubans with his own to offer a compelling portrait of a resilient people awaiting the inevitable passing of the socialist system that has failed them.His photographs and interviews bear striking witness to the hardships and inequalities that exist in this workers’ “paradise,” where the daily struggle to make ends meet on an average income of eight dollars a month has created a longing for change even in formerly ardent revolutionaries. At the same time, Cuba—Going Back is an eloquent record of a personal journey back in time and memory that will resonate with viewers and readers both within and beyond the Cuban American community. It belongs on the shelves of anyone who values excellent photography and well-crafted prose.“This book, based on the photos and interviews he conducted on his trip, is a remarkable first-hand account of today’s Cuba.” —Library Journal

    Have you ever harbored dreams of being a writer? You’re far from alone. Have you wrestled time and again with a seeming inability to write? You’ve got even more company there. Now help is on the way in the person of Gabriele Rico, who was Professor of English and Creative Arts at San Jose State University. In her book Writing the Natural Way, Rico says flatly, “If you can speak, form letters on the page, take a telephone message, or write a thank-you note, you have sufficient language skills to learn to write the natural way.” In this conversation she provides a wealth of information on how you can unlock your own innate creativity and write the novel, poem, or Pulitzer Prize-winning postcard of your dreams.
