Travel writer Liz Brown ofThe Calgary Herald, confirming yet again that sometimes, Cuba is not so much an island as a state of mind.
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).
