THE BASIS OF THE MOVIE “CHE: PART ONE” FROM STEVEN SODERBERGH STARRING BENICIO DEL TORO

The dramatic art and acute perceptiveness evident in Che Guevara’s early diaries fully blossom in this highly readable and often entertaining account of the guerrilla war that led to the 1959 Cuban Revolution. Reminiscences is one of the two books for Steven Soderbergh’s biopic (along with The Bolivian Diary).

Feature chapters describe Che’s first meeting with Fidel in Mexico, the mythical moment when Che had to choose between a knapsack of medicine and another of ammunition, and the anguished story of the murdered puppy.

This new, thoroughly revised edition includes for the first time corrections made to the diary by Che himself and a preface by his daughter Aleida .

“Reflects the life of an extraordinary and important man.”—Library Journal

“When Che Guevara cast his lot with Marxism and revolution the world of letters suffered an incalculable loss. Guevara is a brilliant, thoughtful writer. He is lucid, candid and revealing.”—The Cleveland Press

Features of this new edition include:

  • Preface by Aleida Guevara
  • Revised translation
  • Biographical note
  • Chronology
  • Glossary
  • 32 pp black and white photos

Editorial Reviews

Fort Worth Star Telegram
Guevara left behind him writing that will endure among the best of revolutionary literature . . . Not only is this book a step-by-step account of the revolution-within-a-revolution, but it is also a highly readable personal journal.

    Good Book, a lot that was left out of the movie

    if you've seen the movie "Che part 1" this book goes into a lot more detail and has a lot more background information. the movie goes back and forth, while the movie goes out of order (jumping into the future several times), the book doesn't really refer to anything that is going to happen. the book and movie are both good, movie starts around the 6th or 7th chapter of the book. i recommend this book if you're into history or revolutionary literature.
