By Orlando Ferrand

"Apologia: Cuban adolescence in My Backpack is the author's Memoir approximately his formative years and formative years in Cuba. it's homage to the stories saved alive by way of his kin. The fragmented and reconstructed anecdotes create a feeling of belonging and unconditional love that involves lifestyles, as in a cleaning soap opera unfolding tragic-comic, yet constantly inspiring and uplifting emotions. The thoughts were filtered in the course of the lens of the author's eye who doesn't recount chronological cases of his existence in Cuba. He relatively remembers and retells the sentiments that stem from these situations during which a family's fight to outlive and shield its personal identification, triumphs regardless of all odds; even in the course of geographical and emotional separation in addition to political and ideological restrains. The Cuba of Orlando Ferrand's adolescence years is an self reliant island floating in a myriad of remembrances. a spot that has the imprint of a magic realm, rather than the tangible topography of the Caribbean island."
