5.0 out of 5 stars SHATTERED MEMORIES..., 13 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Waiting For Snow In Havana (Paperback)
This is an achingly poignant memoir, written with much feeling and angst. The author, who, at the age of eleven, took part in Operation Pedro Pan, which airlifted Cuban children to the United States from the hell that would become known as Castro's Cuba, remembers what it was like to be a child growing up in Cuba. His life would never again be the same.

The author's wistful, lyrical recollections of his life in Havana in pre-1962 Cuba are a birds-eye view into a bygone era and the lives that were dramatically changed by political vicissitudes. Redolent with vivid imagery and palpable longing, this book is a moving tribute to a way of life that has since gone by the wayside. It is a profoundly moving, beautifully written memoir that will linger in the reader's mind long after the last page is turned, as well as a brilliant testament to the deep love that the author still has for the land of his birth.
