Description
Vivid and teeming with life, "King of Cuba" transports readers to Cuba and Miami, and into the heads of two larger-than-life men: a fictionalized Fidel Castro and an octogenarian Cuban exile obsessed with seeking revenge against the dictator. Garcia's masterful twinning of these characters combines with a rabble of other Cuban voices to portray the passions and realities of two Cubas--on the island and off-- in a pulsating story that entertains and illuminates.
