Product description

Review

In her latest book the tireless Dervla Murphy, still travelling rough in her late seventies, sets out to get to grips with Cuba a place of impulsive friendship and impenetrable bureaucracy. --Telegraph.co.uk<br /><br />There has always been a raw energy about her work that sets her apart from some of her paler contemporaries. Now in her mid-70s, she has written at least 25 books but, judging by this volume she's in no danger of mellowing ... Fierce, highly moral and uncompromising, this is classic Murphy. In an often anodyne world, she remains an original...she is a refreshingly defiant voice, straight-talking and no-nonsense. --Financial Times, November 2008

The three journeys in her latest book are explorations of [Cuba's] change... disquisitions on homophobia, attitudes to AIDS and much else, indicates that at 77, Murphy s status as one of our most respected travel writers shows no sign of weakening. Eland seems a natural home for her. --Geographical, December 2008
