The Autobiography of Fidel Castro by Norberto Fuentes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Prize-winning author and journalist Norberto Fuentes was once a revolutionary: a writer with privileged access to Fidel Castro's inner circle during some of the most challenging years of the revolution. But in the late 1990s, as the regime began sending its oldest comrades to the firing squad, he became A Man Who Knew Too Much. Escaping a death sentence and now living in exile, Fuentes has written a brilliant, satirical and utterly captivating 'autobiography' of the Cuban leader - in Fidel's own arrogant and seductive language - discussing everything from Castro's early sexual experiences in Biran to his true feelings about Che Guevara and his philosophy on murder, legacy and state secrets. Like Gertrude Stein's "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, or Edmund Morris' Dutch", this wickedly entertaining, true-to-life masterpiece is as imaginative and outsized as Castro himself.
