Waves plunges the reader into a world of dominoes, rum, cigars, sex, drugs, boleros and sharks, while weaving together three episodes of Cuban mass migration to the United States. A book about Cuba which doesn’t side with left or right, but with ordinary people, suffocated by circumstances. A tribute to migrants, their hopes and sacrifices.
