Ruth Behar’s An Island Called Home

greater Cuba, new book Add comments

Here is Ruth Behar’s recent book on Jewish Cuba.  If Ruth’s student Caroline Bettinger-López traced one site of Jewish-Cuban migration to Florida in Cuban-Jewish Journeys, in this richly photographed book Behar addresses the question of her own need to return repeatedly, and the life of the Jewish community in Cuba today, and the book takes us all over the island.  Despite her described back-and-forth travel, as I read the book it did not seem to describe a transnational circuit–that feels like an inadequate metaphor of stasis, closure, completion.  A transnational spiral, perhaps?

Anyway, anyone have links to reviews, etc?
