RRP  $39.95 $31.62
From revolution to embargo, from the charms of old Havana to aquamarine seas and powdery beaches, from the hypnotic rhythms of Afro-Caribbean music to resilient, proud locals, Travelers' Tales Cuba burns with stories of Cuba's intriguing past and vibrant present. Writers both famous and unknown capture the essence of this magical island so close yet so far from the United States. Dave Eggers writes about hitchhikers, Patrick Symmes on his search for Che Guevara, and Stephanie Elizondo Griest on the mistress of rumba. Other highlights include Phillippe Diederich's "Communism and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance," Eliseo Alberto's "Havana When It Rains," Stephen Benz's "Our Mailman in Havana," and Ruth Behar's "A Strawberry and Chocolate Goodbye." These 38 essays together weave a gorgeous tapestry of a land still mostly a mystery to American readers, providing an intriguing look at the glory that is Cuba.
