Cuba - The Land of Miracles : A Journey Through Modern Cuba Paperback


For a growing number of British holidaymakers, Cuba is a Caribbean paradise, but it is also a land of cutbacks and economic instability.

Stephen Smith comes to live on the island, and his search for the real Cuba inevitably becomes a search for Fidel Castro too.

Before meeting his quarry, Smith travels extensively through the 'land of miracles' in an old American automobile.

His highly-personalised account features a bloody initiation into a voodoo-like cult, dining on giant rat, and checking into the Love Hotel. And he goes on manoeuvres in the Everglades with armed, but not especially competent, Cuban exiles dreaming of a second Bay of Pigs.

With disarming wit and considerable insight, Stephen Smith investigates a country where communism and voodoo coexist, and where the influence of its leader of forty years continues to throw a long shadow.
