Overview

The idea of Pepito’s story came from the living conditions in Cuba over the last fifty plus years; chiefly, the absence of nourishing food, manufactured conveniences of every imaginable type, and the lack of common over-the-counter drugs as well as late generation medicines. The foregoing issues principally related to Fidel Castro’s attack on American-style civil liberties and the right of self-determination. The focus of the book however, is the part true but mostly fictional tale of a young boy born to an aristocratic birthright, his few early years of earthly bliss, and his emotional detachment from the nation’s poverty-politics through his obsession with the game of baseball and the baseball games he plays with significant difficulties. The backdrop, and no-less-moving than Pepito’s story, is the living kaleidoscope of characters around Pepito and their own very personal challenges living in the 'so called’ communist state. If you appreciate reality and truth in fiction, this is one story you may truly like.
