A "darkly hilarious" (Elle) novel about a fictionalized Fidel Castro and an octogenarian Cuban exile obsessed with seeking revenge by the National Book Award finalist Cristina García, this "clever, well-conceived dual portrait shows what connects and divides Cubans inside and outside of the island" (Kirkus Reviews).El Comandante, an aging dictator, shambles about his mansion in Havana, visits a dying friend, tortures hunger strikers in one of his prisons, and grapples with the stale end of a life now as devoid of grandeur as his nearly sixty-year-old revolution. Across the waters in Florida, Goyo Herrera, a Miami exile in his eighties, plots revenge against his longtime enemy--the very same El Comandante--whom he blames for stealing his beloved, ruining his homeland, and taking his father's life. Herrera would gladly "wear chains on his ankles, chisel stones for his remaining days, even become a goddamn Democrat for the gratification of personally expediting the tyrant's journey back to the Devil, with whom he'd obviously made a pact." García's masterful writing, "laced with candor and wit" (Publishers Weekly), and "mordantly funny and insightful" point of view (Tampa Bay Times) combine to portray the passions and realities of two Cubas--on the island and off--in a pulsating story that entertains and illuminates.
