For someone like me who was born “somewhat recently”, I’ve only known one kind of Cuba: Castro’s Cuba. I hazily remember history lessons on JFK and the Bay of Pigs, but I’d like to get a better handle on the subject. So, I’m reading Cuba: What Everyone Needs to Know by Julia Sweig . Her writing style is keeping me interested, and her firsthand, recent experience of living in Cuba is giving me a view I didn’t see before. Check it out.
