Longlisted for the National Translation Award. A meditation on the power and limitations of images, THE WINTER GARDEN PHOTOGRAPH began as an homage to a magazine, The Courier, published by UNESCO. Reina Mar a Rodr guez used the magazine's photographs of faraway places to spark an investigation of the mental landscapes comprising her own, contemporary Havana. "I think through / the breath in you; I think through / the blood in you" precisely in striving to inhabit other worlds, she pursues the self.

This edition includes a set of co-translations by Kristin Dykstra and Nancy Gates Madsen, and an interview with Rodr guez, conducted by Rosa Alcal .
