Books Info:

Havana free pdf This title presents sensational hardcover reviews: "Publishers Weekly", "San Francisco Chronicle", "Miami Herald", "Austin-American Statesman" and "Library Journal".Estrada had numerous readings and events in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and Austin to celebrate publication of the hardcover, and will do another round of publicity for the paperback. Estrada was born in Havana, and like many Cuban Americans is now only allowed to visit periodically. The book is his love letter to the city, and will appeal directly to other Cuban Americans or Hispanic Americans who are separated from their home cities.Looking beyond Cold War politics and the nostalgia of Cuban exiles, Estrada uncovers the real Havana and its fascinating history. Portraying the adventurers and dreamers who left their mark on Havana, this book is a deeply personal account of a love affair with a city, as well as an entertaining portrait of a place not easily forgotten.
