Waves

José Ramón Torres
Free sample

“The only thing to be done with this country is leave it, once and for all.”

Ángel could never have pictured himself in a situation like this — hungry, tired, and unsure if he’ll live to see tomorrow. But no price is too high for his family’s future.

Waves plunges the reader into a world of dominoes, rum, cigars, sex, drugs, boleros and sharks, while weaving together three episodes of Cuban mass migration to the United States.

A book about Cuba which doesn’t side with left or right, but with ordinary people suffocated by circumstances.

A tribute to migrants, their hopes and sacrifices.
