“Life in the Cuba of Tomorrow” by Bruce McCall 

“I love Cuban cigars, and this sways me more than it should,” McCall says of his own feelings toward the country. “The island’s history—Spanish exploitation, then American exploitation, then the dismal Castro era—is tragic, but Cuban musicians and artists still rule, attesting to an unquenchable creative impulse that has thrived amid all forms of chaos.”

The Story behind the cover: When I heard the news that the Freedom Tower will be now be the highest building in Manhattan, I thought: ‘Kids!’” Ana Juan, the artist behind this week’s cover “Defiance,” says. “When you are a kid, you’re with your friends, and you say, ‘My ice cream is bigger than yours!’” she adds laughingly. “It’s a kind of a race, even if it makes for a great skyline. Still, I can’t help wondering: ‘Why do humans need to build higher and higher?’ It’s a show of power—something that doesn’t necessarily hold much interest for me. We need better schools, or a better health-care system, or to take care of the cities we have… but I guess building ever higher is our way to show how great we are.”
