Description:
"Ten piedad de mi, Senor, cubano soy." En 1962, Carlos Eire fue uno de los 14.841 ninos que fueron transportados fuera de Cuba en el puente a?reo conocido como la Operacion Pedro Pan—exiliado de su familia, de su patria y de su propia ninez por la Revolucion. Los recuerdos de su vida en La Habana cobran vida en estas memorias evocativas e inolvidables.
"Nieve en La Habana "es a su vez un exorcismo y una oda a un mundo perdido. La Cuba de la ninez de Carlos, con sus lagartijas y su mar azul turquesa banado por un sol esplendoroso, se convierte en una isla maldita con la llegada al poder de un guerrillero llamado Fidel Castro. De pronto la musica callejera se transforma en tiroteos, las pascuas navidenas quedan prohibidas, la disidencia conlleva encarcelamiento y casi todos los amigos de Carlos deben irse de Cuba rumbo a un lugar tan lejano e inconcebible como los Estados Unidos. Carlos tambien terminara en ese mismo exilio, y cumplira el deseo de su madre de convertirse en un hombre americano moderno —aun si su alma permanece en el pais que lo vio nacer.
Narrado con la urgencia de una confesion, "Nieve en La Habana" es un elogio a una patria arruinada y un amoroso testimonio del espiritu colectivo de todos los cubanos, dondequiera que esten.
