It is overflowing with the names, places, and events that make history and create a superb historical novel. We are treated to the fictional Castro's personal recollection of the events at the Moncada Barracks, the victory over Batista, the events at the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missile crisis.

We witness his relationship to and scorn for the various characters and personages of Cuban and world history: Kennedy; Sartre; and his many female companions. The portrait that emerges from the text is of a coarse, vulgar, arrogant megalomaniac obsessed with power and willing to kill at any moment in order to achieve the individual objectives at hand.

One wonders if Castro's personality could really be so unidimensional.

A Spoken Autobiography

Herein lies the problem. Few books on contemporary Cuba and Castro, particularly a book by a Cuban, can resist falling into one of the two prevalent schools of thought: pro- or anti-Castro. This book obviously belongs in the "anti" vein and takes pains to debunk other biographical treatments of Castro that present a more favorable portrait—Frei Betto, for instance While the topic of Cuban politics is a polarizing issue, taking refuge in the absolute values of pro-or anti-Castro is a myopic debate that fails to appreciate the nuances and complexities of reality.But Dampier's men were dissatisfied and miserable, surly and despondent with disappointment, and exhausted by privation and severe labours.
