An enjoyable introduction into the ever-changing popular wisdom and wordplays of Cubans. Informative, succinct, and covering a wide range of everyday settings, Cubanisms proves that a gregarious people may not necessarily be easy to understand, but they are entertaining to figure out.
-Ricardo Pau-Llosa, Cuban-American poet
Pedro García-Menocal has thrown the house out the window with Cubanisms. He's gone all out to shed light on the infinitely clever, colorful way los Cubiches are with words. To which there is only one thing to say: Dale!
-Lydia Martin, Miami Herald columnist and author

Full disclosure, Pedro is my cousin and we have had several "Bayus!" in South Beach.
