Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this fascinating account of a 30-year search for a homeland and a new national identity, Perez Firmat is caught between two culturesthe United States and his motherland, Cubaas he struggles to come to terms with a new life. Exiled from their native land to the United States when the author was just 11, his family hoped for only a short stay until Castro's regime was overthrown. But time went by and every new year brought the same expectations. Very engrossing and full of insights into the Cuban exile community.Jose M. Fornes

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a very good read. I was immersed in it because I am a Cuban born American bred from Miami. I could relate to so many things that the author wrote about his own life. I felt I knew the author without ever having met him. Wonderful book Gustavito!
