Loomis poignantly charts the fledgling Revolution's attempt at a fresh definition of Cubanidad and its suffocation by Soviety centralization...Rigorously researched, elegantly written, and sensitively illustrated, the book is imbued, through the beauty and strangeness of its story, with the flavour of a magic realist novel.
