The moving, wry, wildly beautiful story of a boy exiled from his childhood by the Cuban revolution

Carlos Eire spent his boyhood in an island paradise, engaged in hair-raising adventures but secure at the heart of his somewhat eccentric family. He battled the neighbour's monkey, waged breadfruit wars in the street and blew up as many lizards as he could.

Then, in January 1959, the world changed: President Batista was suddenly gone, a cigar-smoking guerrilla had taken his place, and Christmas was cancelled. The echo of firing squads was everywhere. And, one by one, the author's schoolmates began to disappear - spirited away, alone, to the United States. Soon that would be Carlos's fate too.

This book is intact - getting scruffy - ex library book - discoloured and marked - obviously handled and read a lot.
