About the awarding of the Critic’s Prize (in Cuba) to the Cuban essayist Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria. The scholar won it with a book published by Capiro Editions, from Santa Clara.
We have gone back 200 years, the epoch of the barter:
“I’ll trade you a central fielder for an exiled essayist,” said Mandamas.
“Let me think about it,” responded Queentrentodos… Why don’t you take a salsa doctor? That way you’ll kill two birds with one stone: You send him to combat ebola and complete the artistic Assembly of the Cuban medical Brigade in Africa.
