Anthony DePalma, for many years a reporter for the New York Times, reconstructs the interwoven stories of five ordinary citizens and their families to bring the true story of the Cuban people to the world.

From Castro's heyday to the false dawn of recent years, we witness the hardships of life across six decades of socialist state control. 'The Cubans' maps a country where the revolution that once inspired its people has since tested their faith with tragedy and disillusionment, revealing the daily acts of heroism and the endlessly adaptive resilience that are required of them to survive.

Join Global Book Club Plymouth to discuss the human story of life in Cuba today.

This free event is open to all. Please email for joining instructions to this online meeting.

An initiative of Devon Development Education, Global Book Club Plymouth is supported by the University of Plymouth.
