Atmospherically Perfect, 14 July 2009
One of the best novels I have read this year. Pico Iyer is better known as a travel writer and many of the dialogues sound like they are taken from actual converstaions with Cubans. The book is highly recommended for anyone who is visiting Cuba and wants to know more about the attitudes of the locals and the way of life there.
