In her collection of 12 short stories, originally heard on National Public Radio, storyteller and author Carmen Agra Deedy shares memories of growing up after her family emigrated from Havana. The stories are fresh and funny, full of the warmth of loving family relationships. All have a wonderful Cuban flavor. Deedy has a velvety smooth voice and easy to understand accent; her tone is warm and bubbly. The mood is set with music: a guitar ensemble performance of "Afro Cuban Lullaby" at the beginning and end and brief drum accompaniment between stories. Without a doubt, this is a case where listening to stories is better than reading them. C.R.A. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
