The Portable Island: Nonfiction on Cuba
With a Cuban Song in the Heart features the artwork from 280 album covers from Iván Acosta’s collection of over 5,000 long-playing discs. From unlikely images of historical newsmakers (Fidel Castro drinking a Coca-Cola on a public bus) to a roster of jet-setting celebrities, Ramiro Fernández’s Cuba Then is a welcome new edition of this seductive and lush photographic survey of the small island that continues to fascinate the world. Told in the words of the immigrants themselves, the stories in Jose Manuel Garcia’s Voices from Mariel offer an up-close view of this international crisis, the largest overseas mass migration in Latin American history.

Honored to be celebrating Selected Delanty in March with the Embassy of Ireland in Washington DC hosted by Ambassador Dan Mulhall.
freeing my tongue’s needle
stuck on its damaged record,
how cúpla dán of mine are hearkening back,
a kind of grappling for the life buoy’s O
of the roads, streets and life of the drowned city
we both hail from.

Mark Chester's Twosomes touring exhibit and companion book from Un-Gyve Press represents images culled from his forty years of traveling with a camera, presented in pairings related by subject matter, graphic interest or, as the photographer puts it, “a stretch of the imagination.” — a wide-reaching body-of-work that connects architectural icons with sidewalk signage; Japan with Iowa; 1979 with 2002; celebrity with passerby in a manner that reveals, as novelist Paul Theroux describes, “tremendous humanity and humor....In this juxtaposition of matching moods and paraphernalia, Mark Chester shows us in an ingenious way how the world is related and how we matter to each other.”
