Fascinating. "Chicago Tribune" Unprecedented. . . . Astonishing. "Miami Herald" A rarity: a balanced, compassionate, intimate journal of Cuba s slow, agonizing decay. "Sports Illustrated" Price describes a lovely, proud, impoverished people caught in a] repressive system that destroys thousands as it celebrates a handful. "Kirkus " Takes the wider view, poking its nose into the politics and culture of Cuba every few pages. Price has an easy, lyrical style that elevates his work beyond the usual sports fare. "Business Week" Fascinating, sometimes hilarious, often heart-wrenching. "Philadelphia Inquirer" Easily the most engaging book on Cuban sports if not Cuba published in many years. "Baseball America" Offers a rare and provocative tour of the world s most remarkable sports culture. It s an unforgettable story of supremely gifted athletes, the utter madness of politics, and the scent of big money across the sea. Carl Hiaasen Price is one of the finest writers on sports anywhere.
