At its center is Naty: born in 1925, educated in the United States, a socialite during the Batista era, who after marriage to a prominent doctor and the birth of a daughter became intoxicated with Castro and his revolution (here, published for the first time, are the letters they exchanged while he was in jail). Though her husband and daughter immigrated to the United States after Castro's victory, Naty remained in Cuba to raise her second child, Castro's unacknowledged daughter, only to be ultimately confronted by his dismissive, withering judgment. One of her two daughters settles well into life in America, while the other never recovers from her father's repudiation; her granddaughter, who Naty desperately believes will return to Cuba when Castro is removed from the island; and her mother, an unregenerate reactionary." Illustrated with photographs. Selected chronology, bibliographical note. 234 pp. ISBN: 0-679430539.
