Four Men: Living the Revolution/An Oral History of Contemporary Cuba

Intimate and gossipy in the unique Oscar Lewis tradition, his final work explores the texture of life within a revolutionary society, but on levels far below the plane upon which public and official discourse takes place. Forms change, institutions flower and die, but the earthy realities of daily existence retain their marvelous powers of self-perpetuation.
