Check out this recent review by John Paul Rathbone, writing for The Financial Times (my favorite newspaper, by the way), of Anthony DePalma’s latest book “The Cubans: Life in a World of Lost Charisma.” This beautiful book contains a collection of literary portraits of ordinary working-class Cubans, all of whom live in the rough-and-tumble neighborhood of Guanabacoa, across the bay from Old Havana. (As an aside, Guanabacoa is also the place where Hansel Ernesto Hernández Galiano, a young unarmed black man, was recently killed by the Cuban Police.) Suffice it to say I have just ordered my copy of DePalma’s “The Cubans” and look forward to reporting back soon.
