Havana: A Subtropical Delirium by Mark Kurlansky

Rum, cigars, bright classic cars, Castro, Varadero beach, Celia Cruz…these are just a few of the iconic images Americans have of the capital of Cuba. A mere 90 miles from the United States, recent political changes have opened our neighbor to the south for exciting exploration and education. In this brief, informative, and fascinating book, journalist Kurlansky describes the turbulent history of the island as well as its colorful and vibrant culture of food, music, sports, language, literature, and architecture. ¡Vamos a ir a la Habana!
