Product description


'Cristina Garcia takes one of the most fascinating political figures of the 20th century, imagines him as a man and, through him, imagines his country. In the end her subject matter is Cuba.' New York Times 'Fabulously absurdist.' Miami Herald 'Darkly hilarious. Garcia braids parallel stories with consummate ease.' Elle Magazine
