"I am captured by the sense of urgency with which [Eire] writes. We must know about his Cuba and his experiences — not to judge them, just to know about them, to validate their richness and humanity. Any reader who has a life experience that makes them an exile (physical, emotional or spiritual) can intimately relate to this tale. It is a loving eulogy."
— From Leslie, who listens to member station KQED in the San Francisco Bay area
