Synopsis: "Ritmo" Torriente never wanted to be a baseball player -- until the Cuban boy was abandoned by a father who fled their communist homeland in pursuit of his big-league ambitions. The vengeful young man found himself consumed by a desire to outdo his father and follow his own dreams to America. Off The Island is the tale of a father and son whose antipathy towards each other masks the reality that they are consumed by identical passions and inner demons. From post-revolutionary 1960s Cuba to the modern-day U.S., this chronicle of harrowing escape, of family and freedom is unlike any other baseball story ever told. It is America's national pastime seen through a global lens. By way of my own introduction, I am the senior political correspondent for The Canadian Press making my first foray outside journalism and into fiction-writing. The storyline came to me earlier in my career when I covered the Montreal Expos.
