About the Book

José Carlos Orges Prada is a Cuban poet who has sought and found relief and support in his writings. In his second volume of original poems, Prada reflects on the slow, subtle, painful, gratifying, and incommensurable understanding of who we are; what lies under the skin we inhabit; what we accept and do not accept as we come into the world; and what remains of the labyrinth of experiences at the end of each day. His diverse reflections speak of disappointment, love as a sublime state, and the heartbreaks that leave us devastated. They also speak of exile, its painful uprooting, and the bitter and alienating feelings it leaves behind as well as unbreakable faith in oneself and the impatience that takes over as a result of shortages and voids. Beyond the Tint of Violins is a collection of poetry penned by a Cuban immigrant as he explores his life experiences, his identity, and the world around him.
