 Gotta Have It

Try to Remember by Iris Gomez was a wonderful read. Those of us who were raised in a bi-lingual family can appreciate the references in Spanish as some words do not have an exact translation, particularly when it comes to languages of the heart. Growing up in Miami during the "Cuban Invasion", I was all too familiar with being stereotyped for not being White Anglo Saxon Protestant... anyone who had dark features or spoke Spanish in Miami during that period was considered to be Cuban. Gomez' description of the city of Miami and the ties that bind us at home brought me back in time to a recollection of termoil and self-doubt growing up, home life and keeping secrets. Try to Remember was a great read and a candid look into a life I remember.
