About the Book and Author:
Es Cuba is a poignant and passionate travel memoir about falling in love with a country and with one of its compatriots. Aschkenas never strays from her acute awareness that there is no way to separate her foreignness from the complex mix of emotions – devotion and rejection, enrapture and apprehension – that she develops toward the country.
Lea Aschkenas has written about travel, literature, and life at large for the Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, and Salon.com. She is also published in the books, The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2006, Travelers’ Tales Central America, Travelers’ Tales Cuba, The Unsavvy Traveler, Two in the Wild, and Beside the Sleeping Maiden: Poets of Marin.
