Pablo Medina is the author of the novel The Return of Felix Nogara and the memoir Exiled Memories (both Persea), and the novels The Cigar Roller, Cubop City Blues, among others.
Medina left Cuba with his family at the age of 12. In this short, personal memoir, he depicts a happy, middle-class childhood in pre-revolutionary Cuba in brief vignettes. He also shares the experience of being transplanted to the United States. He writes from the heart, seeking to recapture the essence of being Cuban despite the 30-year effort of Castro to transform Cuba. Medina's style is filled with telling detail and humorous, insightful anecdotes. With the rapid changes in the Communist world in the past year, Cuba may again before too long be seeking its pre-revolutionary past. This volume provides one person's view of what that life was like. For general readers.-- James Rhodes, Luther Coll., Decorah, Ia.
