Product description

Review

I love this book. . . an insightful, mature, and sometimes droll exploration of a profoundly liberated, adventuresome and driven personality. I love the life of Celia Sanchez, a life that was singular, sui generis, and true to its time of revolution and change in Cuban society.-Alice Walker, author, The Color Purple; winner, Pulitzer Prize,A penetrating and startling biography. . . takes on the importance of the work of Arundhati Roy or Noam Chomsky in its insistence on looking at facts rather than self-serving capitalist and neocolonialist myth. . . also a damn good read about a passionate, sensuous, and brilliant woman!-Sapphire, author of Push and The Kid,Engrossing, endearing, and eloquent, this sympathetic and superbly crafted portrait of the True Flower of the Revolution unfolds in magnificent detail. . . so intimate is Stouts well-informed tour de force that the description of Sanchezs death brings the reader to tears, inspired by a deep sense of love and loss.-Christopher P. Baker, author, Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro's Cuba,In this riveting and eloquent portrait, Celia Sanchez finally emerges as a major star in Cubas revolutionary drama: a political animal, a management consultant, a historian, and of course, a confidante to Fidel Castro. . . her legacy, especially for women and girls education and health, and as the chief archivist of the insurgency, comes alive in Stouts exhaustively researched biography.-Julia Sweig, Nelson and David Rockefeller Senior Fellow and Director, Latin America Studies and Global Brazil Initiative, Council on Foreign Relations,This excellent book tells us about Celia Sanchez, an early leader of the Cuban Revolution and a fascinating character. . . as Stout movingly describes her, Celia was totally devoted to Fidel and to the Cuban Revolution. And she loved and was loved by the Cuban people. I was in Havana at the time of her death in January of 1980 and well remember the deep sadness it occasioned.-Wayne S. Smith, senior fellow and director of the Cuba Project, Center for International Policy; former head, U.S. Interests Section in Havana, --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
