Description
From inside this tightly controlled one-party state, Sarah Rainsford, the BBC 's woman in Havana ', reports on lives shaped by Fidel Castro 's giant social experiment and how the nation feels as the six-decade rule of the Castros comes to an end.
As Cuba restores relations with the United States and the tourists flood back, she questions whether the island will again be America 's tropical playground, the past becoming present. Seeking a window into pre-revolutionary Cuba, she searches for the ghosts of Graham Greene 's Havana and the paths walked by other visiting writers hooked on a city where every vice was permissible '. Through all these stories and those still being told, Our Woman in Havana weaves an enthralling, atmospheric portrait of this enigmatic country as it teeters, once more, at a historic crossroads.
