In these linked tales about the Cuban-American experience and the immigrant experience in general, Ana Menendez has instantly established herself as a natural storyteller who "probes with steady humor and astute political insight the dreams versus the realities of her characters" (Elle). From the prizewinning title story - a masterpiece of humor and heartbreak - unfolds a series of family snapshots that illuminate the landscape of an exiled community rich in heritage, memory, and longing for the past. In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd is at once "tender and sharp-fanged" (L.A. Weekly) as Ana Menendez charts the territory from Havana to Coral Gables with unforgettable passion and explores whether any of us are capable, or even truly desirous, of outrunning our origins.

Love at first listen!
Great performance by this talented reader, Maria Rodriguez Savaria, of this spectacular prose by Ana Menedez. Story telling at its greatest- strong characters with complex psychology, settings and culture as dynamic as the characters. A deep understanding of the way people experience intimate relationships with each other and the places they live.
