Fuentes is therefore, a witness to life in Cuba for the inner circle. These people are, within their own circle, omnipotent. They can procure computers to write, like Fuentes, or recording equipment like Pablo Milanés, which other writers or artists can only dream about. They keep large bundles of US currency hidden in a variety of places (Fuentes kept part of his stash with his favorite mistress) just in case it's required. They are absolutely amoral and would get into any sordid business provided it's profitable and Fidel's authorized it. For them revolutionary rethoric is just a useful discourse to maintain their privileged status. Fidel himself is, as one would expect, a megalomaniac with a speech disorder (he can't shut up), who believes in degrading or exalting his underlings in any way that suits him.Read more ›
People living there never realized all what was hidden under the public face of reality. Yet, skeptic people may doubt whether all facts and versions written there are TOTALLY truth or not, in spite the photographic evidence given by the writer.
Why did he not have the guts to disclose all of this at the time it was happenning? Because he was part of the favored ones living "la vida loca"?
The fact the writter lives in the exile, made it less likely to believe totally his version on the presented facts. People there (in the exile) can be manipulated to write whatever they want to read there.
It is an interesting book, anyway, easy reading and interesting in some way.
