Luis M. Garcia, "Child of the Revolution"
Publisher: Allen & Unwin | 2007-04-01 | ISBN 1741148529 | PDF | 248 pages | 6.85 MB
Compelling and vivid, this memoir presents an intimate portrait of Castro€™s Cuba through a wide-eyed and eager boy growing up in the 1960s. At the nave age of 10, Luis M. Garcia, embarrassed by his anti-revolutionary parents, pledges his allegiance to Lenin, Marx, and the mythical Che Guevara, knowing that this is the only path to become a better revolutionary€”and to get out of school early. Told with a detailed intimacy and a gentle humor that conveys the richness and warmth of Cuban life, this memoir illuminates the uncertainty, fear, and political force that tore families apart as Castro sought to destroy capitalism and establish Cuba as a world superpower.
