Description

Waves plunges the reader into a world of dominoes, rum, cigars, sex, drugs, boleros and sharks, while weaving together three episodes of Cuban mass migration to the United States. A book about Cuba which doesn’t side with left or right, but with ordinary people, suffocated by circumstances. A tribute to migrants, their hopes and sacrifices.

José Ramón Torres (Havana, 1963) completed his university studies in English Language and Literature at University of Havana and a PhD program in Education at University of Barcelona. He has worked as a university professor, translator, interpreter, TV presenter, proofreader, localization project and language manager, telephone operator, porter and street seller. Waves is his first foray into fiction after several academic publications.
