In a haunting yet hopeful novel in verse award winning author Margarita Engle tells the story of Antonio Chuffat a young man of African Chinese and Cuban descent who became a champion of civil rightsAsia Africa Europe Antonio Chuffat’s ancestors clashed and blended on the beautiful island of Cuba Yet for most. I have fallen in love with Engle's works this year They cover aspects of Cuban culture and history that are often dismissed and overlooked As a woman married to a man of Cuban descent raiding two little boys who are of Cuban descent I find Engle's works to be relevant in my household This particular book covers the journey of Chinese Cubans a group of Cubans who are often ignored in larger history Engle's blends historical fact with beautiful free verse poetry and a mix of fictional and real life characters Her attention to detail and research is apparent Although the sections and poems are short they succeed at telling the story and creating round characters rather than mere caricatures If you are a person interested in diverse reads and knowing about other countries particularly lesser known details than this and any other Engle book is something you need to read

For some reason I got tear eyed while reading this I really liked Engle’s writing style and the story turns so beautiful in her words I’m super excited about having her memoir and jumping into another of her works soon
