Overview

Memoirs of Joseph R. Yarini,son of Raul Yarini and descendant of Alberto Yarini, the famous gigolo in Cuban history.

In 1960 'Raulito' was forced to leave his country and the people he loved to avoid persecution, oppression and communism.

In contrast from others that left the lost island and kept with their customs, traditions and language, he choose to forget - that is until now!

After landing in Miami with nothing but his name, he worked hard, joined the Army, fought prejudices, became a family man, built a business, became a racecar driver, found faith and was touched by God's spirit.

Adversities couldn't defeat him!

Congratulations to my old friend, I have to take off my hat to Joseph R. Yarini for bringing that level o quality,intensity,sensitivity and beuty to paper. He is not only a good writer but also an artist that posses a gift that a very small group of people have...TALENT. Although I haven't seen Raulito for half centur, Iam honor and lucky to have been a small part of his life in Havana,Cuba. Those who want a little inside as to how it was back then should read this book. BREAK A LEG RAULI Nora {The plain girl}

I would recommend reading this book because it shows how determination, a sense of humor and faith in God can see you through life. It is humorous at times and honest, revealing how one man has worked hard with the cards he has been dealt and has learned to 'Roll with the Punches.' To those that speak Spanish it will be a plus!
