Día de los perros muertos

30 October 2009

The Dallas Morning News’ entire Havana bureau is Tracy Eaton.  Half of the entire original United States press corps in Cuba (the other was Laurie Goering of the Chicago Tribune) since 2000, Eaton also posts his affectionate, but clear-eyed blog about his fellow Habeñenos (two and four legged) at Along the Malecón.

Just in time for both Hallowe’en and Día de los muertos, he writes about the collaborative effort of Cuban artist Julio César Peña Peralta and Alabama book designer Steve Miller in creating a fine print edition of  Cade Collum’s eight poem series, “The Dogs of Havana”, with translations into Spanish by Maria Vargas.

Published by Red Hydra Press, the 250 edition (75 signed and numbered hand-bound copies at $475 US, the other $275 each) are collector’s items, naturally, but the Red Hyrda Press has had pity on those of us of limited means, making a PDF download available free.
