The author's streetwise yet learned style examines the Cuban Revolution and how it affected students who attended the Jesuit boy school, Dolores, in Satiago de Cuba. Among the alumni are Fidel and Raul Castro. The author interviewed Los Dolorinos living in Cuba and the US.
At times, I wondered if he was saying that the awful regime in Cuba might be better than living under a leader like Batista. Then, the opposite thoughts would occur always leaving me wondering.
