The density of cultural reference is accessible, and is both serious and playful. Today's Cuba appears as a backdrop of the stories, but not in a crude or touristic way. Even criticism is made to serve literary purposes. Iraida H. Lopez' prologue offers an overview of the short story in Cuba since 1959, focusing particularly on the 1990's generation. She discusses not only there current themes in Portela's stories, but also many of the strategies utilized by the author to accomplish her goals. More than a hundred footnotes, in the production of which Lopez and Portela collaborated, elucidate both personal and academic aspects of the stories.
