City of a Hundred Fires (1998) --
Winner of the 1997 Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize.
City of a Hundred Fires presents us with a journey through the cultural coming
of age experiences of the hyphenated Cuban-American. This distinct group,
known as the Generation (as coined by Bill Teck), are the bilingual children
of Cuban exiles nourished by two cultural currents the fragmented traditions
and transferred nostalgia of their parents' Caribbean homeland and the very
real and present America where they grew up and live.
