Wenceslao Gálvez y Delmonte

University Press of Florida

Gálvez dedicates this section of the book largely to descriptions of the emigrant community in Ybor City, with entries on outstanding personalities and their activities in support of the Cuban War of Independence. He also includes a discussion of the Italian community in Tampa. Most notable in this section are accounts of Gálvez’s employments: his audition and work as a lector (reader) in a cigar factory that illuminates many aspects of this legendary practice; and an account of his travails as a door-to-door salesman. Entries in this section include: Pachata, My Valise, The Mockingbirds, Bonifacio Byrne, Suna Echemendía, La Estrella Solitaria, The Volunteers, The Railroad Station, His Shadow, Barber Shop, Liceo Cubano, The Sanchez Sisters, Federico de la Torre Club, An Audition for Lector, Ramón Rivero, Ice, Cherokee Club, Carolina la Patriota, From the Countryside, Juan Arnao, Carbonell’s Bookstore, Carriages, The Reading, and The Café.
