Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A ground-breaker. The author perceived that the way Cubans die tells us a lot about the way Cubans live and relate among themselves. Curiously enough, he brings up only {en passant} the lyrics of the Cuban national anthem: "...do not fear a glorious death, for to die for the fatherland is to live." All Cubans know these words by heart. [JMH]
