Women of the Revolution
This essay is a review of Christina Garcia’s novel `Dreaming in Cuban`.
Christina Garcia’s “Dreaming in Cuban” follows three generations of women in a Cuban-American family, and looks at the effects of the Cuban diaspora in America. This paper examines how the novel relates to how families are divided over the revolution.
“A patchwork of incident, memory, letters, dreams and visions provides glimpses of a Cuban family at home and in exile in the ’70’s and ’80’s, but Garcia’s debut suffers from its fragmented style. From disparate times, places, and (mostly female) points-of- view, Garcia reveals the circumstances and inner lives of various members of the del Pino family.”
