Overview

Yocandra in the Paradise of Nada by Zoe Valdes, Valde S.

Born the year of Castro's revolution, Yocandra embodies its promise and hope. But as she grows up, she sees how it turns her beautiful homeland of Cuba into a wasteland of despair, and she embarks on her own course of survival. Yocandra in the Paradise of Nada is a deeply funny, highly erotic, and moving portrait of an island only ninety miles off the Florida coast, yet worlds away.
