"No doubt, when the 'grand old man'' of the Cuban revolution dies, there will be a mass turnout for his funeral. After years of brain-washing, perhaps some of the mourning will be genuine. But most Cubans know what life is like outside their own country and long for something better."
Welcome to the blog of my new book, Child of the Revolution: Growing up in Castro's Cuba, which is published in Australia and New Zealand by Allen & Unwin.
The book is now available in the UK, Canada and the US, and in Brazil (in Portuguese).
