Exiled Memoirs: A Cuban Childhood

Exiled Memoirs: A Cuban Childhood Pablo Medina

Medina left Cuba with his family at the age of 12. In this short, personal memoir, he depicts a happy, middle-class childhood in pre-revolutionary Cuba in brief vignettes. He also shares the experience of being transplanted to the United States. He writes from the heart, seeking to recapture the essence of being Cuban despite the 30-year effort of Castro to transform Cuba. Medina's style is filled with telling detail and humorous, insightful anecdotes. With the rapid changes in the Communist world in the past year, Cuba may again before too long be seeking its pre-revolutionary past. This volume provides one person's view of what that life was like.
