Publishers Weekly Especially timely in light of the Elian Gonzales affair, a former U.S. spokesperson in Havana conveys her impression of the strong spirit of Cuban citizens given the contradictory realities of the Revolution. Reference and Research Book News We readers are the beneficiaries of Moses's deep understanding of the Cuban people and the political, economic, and social transformation they are carrying out against the will of their government. -- Richard A. Nuccio, President Clinton's special advisor for Cuba from 1995?1996 Catherine Moses clearly put her two years as 'Our Woman in Havana' to good use, developing a solid understanding of Cuba's faded dreams of a socialist utopia and gathering wonderfully human anecdotes about daily life. -- Juan O.

Moses offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at a turning point in the history of Cuba. Her intellectual honesty, her engaging humor, and her deep love for Cuba and the Cubans ooze from every page. It is a bittersweet account that captures graphically the haunting surrealism of the Cuban existence. -- Franklin W. Knight, Johns Hopkins University Beautifully written, evocative and lyrical at the same time that it is chock full of information and local texture. -- Stanley Fish, University of Illinois at Chicago
