Carlos Eire's story of a boyhood uprooted by the Cuban Revolution quickly lures listeners in, as eleven-year-old Carlos and his older brother Tony touch down in the sun-dappled Miami of 1962. It was a place of daunting abundance where his old Cuban self had to die to make way for a new, American self waiting to be born.

There's a fair amount of soul-searching mixed in that I could have lived without, but it is a good story.

If you are fond of immigrant narratives like myself you will like this. The story is compelling of a child sent to the US just with his brother after Castro's take over, but not that well written. The politic is very anti Castro and not that I am pro but it seemed to lack any nuance in this view.
