TRADING WITH THE ENEMY:
A Yankee Travels Through Castro's Cuba
Author:Tom Miller

"Havana knew me by my shoes", begins Miller's lively account of more than eight months travelling through Cuba, from coastal cities to mountain villages, from the Bay of Pigs to both sides of the fence at Guantánamo, mixing with its literati and black marketeers, its cane cutters and cigar rollers.

Granted unprecedented access to travel throughout the country, Miller presents us with a rare insight into one of the world's only Communist countries. Its best-known personalities and ordinary citizens talk to him about the U.S. embargo and tell their favorite Fidel jokes as they stand in line for bread at the Socialism or Death Bakery. Miller provides a running commentary on Cuba's food shortages, exotic sensuality, and baseball addiction as he follows the scents of Graham Greene, José Marti, Ernest Hemingway, and the Mambo Kings.

The result of this informed and adventurous journey is a vibrant, rhythmic portrait of a land and people long shielded from American eyes.
