Another joke contrasts the perspectives of Cubans on the island and those in exile when the Pope? When the cap alights on the ocean Fidel rushes to get it and walks on water to retrieve it for the Pope.

And how is it spelled? Is is Flinton or Clinton? Fast forward to the 21st century and we find humor in a new guise—in the stories of author Nancy Alonso, who puts the observational skills of her physiology training to work diagnosing the Cuban situation with a sly but therapeutic approach.
In Havana Noir, an edited collection of short stories that includes many famous names as well as Obejas herself, the introduction states:? The noir, it seems, may be particularly apt for Havana: Descriptive rather than prescriptive, noirs explore the symptoms of an ailing society but seldom suggest remedies?.
In fact the salient humor in Obejas? Perhaps most importantly Alonso serves as ironic counterpoint to the harsh rhetoric of U. The punitive policy toward Cuba and Cubans that has escalated under the Bush administration is evidenced not only by the curtailing of family visits by Cuban Americans to their homeland and by travel restrictions in general but also by the U.
State Department? In , conference organizers moved the meeting from Boston to Montreal to allow Cuban academics to attend. All this is in striking contrast to the policy in when LASA held its congress in Miami and over Cuban scholars attended. In recent years the United States strategy has been to keep academic exchanges at bay, keep families apart, and even —for a while—keep books from the so-called?

The Magdalena River that Florentino Ariza came to know on his first voyage was described as a fabulous place, mythic in scale, extravagant in the richness of its animals and vegetation.
It could be said that the river is described, in this first portrayal, as a geographical utopia, even though it is not an inexistent non-place. For this reason, adds Bloch, the characteristic operations associated with a utopia are discovery and invention—the first seeking the path to a possible new and better world, the second undertaking its rational and orderly construction.
Amor shows the destruction of this dream through the devastation of the river at the end of the novel. The possibility of happiness is, as David Bueher observes, a minor utopia; built on the feelings of the lovers, it rescues them from the ruin that accompanies them.
A new and sweeping utopia of life, where no one will be able to decide for others how they die, where love will prove true and happiness be possible, and where the races condemned to one hundred years of solitude will have, at last and forever, a second opportunity on earth.
On the one hand, the destruction of the Magdalena in the novel reflects an evident environmental preoccupation and demonstrates a rejection of the modern idea of progress.
The feeling that dominates the depiction of the Magdalena throughout the novel is that of nostalgia, that longing for a past annihilated by the unfulfilled promises of modernity and the devastating effects of violence. Also, the Magdalena River of Novia, just as with the river of Amor, plays a primordial role in the narrative.
It is the alpha and omega of the novel, since by its waters the protagonist first arrives in Tora and also departs at the end of the story.
It is at the river, too, that they promise to seek each other out if one of them should leave the village.
In place of this mirage, Restrepo proposes to write the reality of Colombia through a combination of personal drama, collective trauma, and the destruction of the natural surroundings. The feminization of the Magdalena in Novia has an erotic quality, arising from the alliance of its currents with the prostitute character and from its serving as a place of seduction.
Kate Soper explains that the metaphor of nature as woman or as a source of erotic pleasure is not innocent because it arises from an anxious drive for domination—not solely toward virgin and unexplored territory but also toward the women who symbolize it.
This connection has led to analogies between domination of nature and feminine oppression, which Novia exploits by identifying the polluted river with a young prostitute in a village under the political and economic control of a U.
This association is suggested by an interview in which Laura Restrepo affirms that Novia is a metaphor for her country cit. Unable to explain itself to itself, but capable of absolute dignity. The reading of Sayonara as a symbol of the nation becomes even more evident when we join it to her identification with the Magdalena.
The merging of Sayonara and the Magdalena as symbols of Colombia is illuminated through an analysis of one of the episodes of the novel that has most captured the attention of critics.
They flowed past one by one, or embracing as a couple, or sometimes hand-in-hand as part of a larger circle, transformed into a sponge, a porous material that floated peacefully, pale, at last impregnated with moonlight after having spilled into the riverbanks, so long ago now, all the unrest and pain of their blood.
Sayonara, the girl of good-byes, submerged her feet in the water to be close to them, and controlled her panic as they brushed her ankles, got tangled in her legs with the viscosity of algae, and sent her messages in their peculiar language, which was a gurgle of organic substance dissolving into shadows.
She knew too: I am myself and my dead ones, and she felt less alone, as if the millions of steps of distance had been shortened. Jones explains that, in the context of Greco-Roman funerary rites, bathing in the river or sprinkling river water is part of the purification process of the mourners It is significant that this purification process impacts not only Sayonara but also the deceased, signaling the importance of recognizing the fusion of personal experience and collective trauma in order to achieve healing.
Where the love between Florentino and Fermina can navigate untouched the polluted waters of the Magdalena, indifferent to the presence of floating corpses, Sayonara is one with her surroundings: she dips her feet in the river and communicates with the dead, who are her dead. The poetic and embellished image Restrepo puts forward for destruction and death, far from minimizing the gravity of feeling it conveys, appears as an urgent cry for understanding that on the river—that fugitive stream that symbolizes the nation—row the living, like Sayonara, who are a little bit dead, and the dead, who are a little bit alive.
Restrepo seems to suggest that there exists no possibility of strictly personal salvation, because individual and collective destinies are inseparably intertwined. In likening Sayonara to the river and the nation, Restrepo warns that pollution, amnesia, death, trauma, exploitation, and violence are ills that know no boundaries.
With equal force, they invade private and public space, personal and national reality, and thereby shape alike the destiny of an individual and of an entire country. For all of these reasons, nostalgia for an idealized past and longing for an impossible future, sentiments on which the representation of the Magdalena in Amor is built, find no foothold in the portrait Restrepo develops of the river and of the country it symbolizes. To truly witness this tragedy and to write about it, Restrepo suggests that it be seen up close, face-to-face, remembering that in its image are reflected the individual, nature, and society as a whole.
At the same time, the sediment load from the river and the deforestation of the Magdalena basin have degraded ecosystems, led to the collapse of fishing, and compromised navigability along various stretches of the river —
