Blurb: Crossing Borders brings you a splendid collection of poetry and micro-prose from an eclectic assembly of authors. Cross the sands of time and swim in the ocean of this impressive work. Reviews: Crossing Borders is a wonderful anthology of poetry and prose contributed by members of the Canada Cuba Literary Alliance (CCLA). The pieces in this diverse collection run the gamut from the very touching personal and introspective reflections to those of sociopolitical pondering and lament. Within, you will find a wealth of contributions from both Cuba and Canada, each country rich in its differences of climate, geography, history, and culture. But in it, as well, you will discover the similarities of voice, the place from which it comes, and in it a reminder of the arbitrariness of lines that we draw - between place, between person. We are all, yes, different. But we are all, yes, equally the same. Bruce Kauffman, Editor The bond between Cuba and Canada is not defined by common borders or current events. There is a brotherhood, a shared consciousness, which goes beyond time and space. This anthology is a testament to what has already been accomplished, and a foundation for what could be even greater work and a greater relationship.
