Cuba: A Journey

By Jacobo Timerman
Knopf, 1990
125 pp. $18.95
Purchase

Argentina's veteran journalist reports in vivid detail on his unofficial tour of Cuba in the summer of 1987. He is struck by "the sclerosis of a regime unable to accept modification of any sort," a newspaper that is "simply a degradation of the act of reading," Fidel Castro's "megalomania" and a "collective supporting hypocrisy." This is vintage Timerman: provocative, opinionated, informative, insightful and, at times, a bit outrageous.
