Summary "Adios, Happy Homeland! is a group of interlinked tales that challenge our preconceptions of storytelling. This critical look at the life of the Cuban writer pulls apart and reassembles the myths that have come to define Menéndez's culture, blending illusion with reality and exploring themes of art, family, language, superstition, and the need to escape --from the island, memory, stereotype, and from the self. We're taken into a sick man's fever dream as he waits for a train beneath a strange night sky, into a community of parachute makers facing the end in a windy town that no longer exists, and onto a Cuban beach where strange debris washes ashore in the wake of a mother and son's hurried escape on a boat bound for America"--Cover flap.
