More About The Autobiography of Fidel Castro by Norberto Fuentes; Anna Kushner
 
 
 
Overview
An audacious biography of the ex-president of Cuba told in Castro s own outrageous, bombastic voice. Prize-winning author and journalist Norberto Fuentes was once a revolutionary: a writer with privileged access to Fidel Castro s inner circle during some the most challenging years of the revolution. But in the late 1990s, as the regime began sending its oldest comrades to the firing squad, he became A Man Who Knew Too Much. Escaping a death sentence and now living in exile, Fuentes has written a brilliant, satirical, and utterly captivating autobiography of the Cuban leader in Fidel s own arrogant and seductive language discussing everything from Castro s early sexual experiences in Biran to his true feelings about Che Guevara and his philosophy on murder, legacy, and state secrets. Critics have long admired Fuentes s writing; one U.S. article called him Norman Mailer s Cuban pen pal. Akin to Gertrude Stein s The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, or Edmund Morris s Dutch, this wickedly entertaining, true-to-life masterpiece is as imaginative and outsized as Castro himself."
