Trading with the Enemy: A Yankee Travels Through Castro's Cuba Book Description

The author of The Panama Hat Trail and On the Border gives a revolutionary rumba through Castro's Cuba. Granted unprecedented access to travel throughout the country, Miller presents readers with a rare, detailed look at life in one of the world's last Communist countries and one of America's closest neighbors."Havana knew me by my shoes," begins Tom Miller's lively and entertaining account of more than eight months traveling through Cuba, from coastal cities to mountain villages, from the Bay of Pigs to both sides of the fence at Guantanamo, mixing with its literati and black marketeers, its cane cutters and cigar rollers. Granted unprecedented access to travel throughout the country, the author presents us with a rare insight into one of the world's only Communist countries. Its best-known personalities and ordinary citizens talk to him about the U.S. embargo and tell their favorite Fidel jokes as they stand in line for bread at the Socialism or Death Bakery. Miller provides a running commentary on Cuba's food shortages, exotic sensuality, and baseball addiction as he follows the scents of Graham Greene, Jose Marti, Ernest Hemingway, and the Mambo Kings. The result of this informed and adventurous journey is a vibrant, rhythmic portrait of a land and people too long shielded from American eyes.
