A fantastic story that doubles as a vivid portrait of life in Havana during the height of the 'Special Period'. Beautifully written and completely riveting.

I loved this book! It's a great story of a man coming to terms with holding on to his ideals and facing reality. There's also a little family mystery mixed in there for good measure.
