As the granddaughter of Eastern European and Russian shtetl-reared grandparents who immigrated as teenagers in the early 1920s to the fierce tropical beauty of Cuba, Anders is heir apparent to a legacy of transatlantic alienation. With dazzling wit and hilarity mined from the depths of loss and yearning, Anders chronicles her journey from beach baby to ostracized exile to vibrant intellectual, along the way balancing her obsession with killer outfits and zaftig, orgasmic Cuban meals with the more serious pursuits of love, sanity, and lipstick in perfect siren red.
Whether dealing with her larger-than-life Mami Dearest, her youthful obsessions with Twiggy and Nancy Sinatra, the specter of Fidel Castro's role in her destiny, or her time at the exclusive and Waspy Sidwell Friends private school in Washington, D.C., Anders leads readers on a trip through what it means to be truly unique and just what lengths people will go to in order to be accepted.
Jubana is ultimately a bittersweet, quirky, feminine story of bicultural acceptance and fusion, written with warmth, vivacity, and finally layered with the thoughtful sensitivity of a woman who has kept herself, like a great piece of jewelry, pure and brilliant -- throughall that life throws at her.
