Che Guevara and Fidel Castro; the Buena Vista Social Club and salsa dancing; slavery, pirates, cigars, rum and sugar; Graham Greene and Ernest Hemingway; political repression; and ecstatic Afro-Cuban religion: 21st-century Cuba is all and none of these things.Intrigued by the many disparate views of Cuba held by tourists, the media and those involved with culture and politics, Zoe Bran visits this country of contradictions. Interweaving history and current events, she paints a vivid and compelling picture of contemporary Cuba. She finds a land that has little in common with the tourist image of tropical paradise, encountering a diffident country whose people reveal an individuality and tenacity at once astonishing and humbling.
