    A childhood in a privileged household in 1950s Havana was joyous and cruel, like any other - but with certain differences. The neighbor's monkey was liable to escape and run across your roof. Surfing was conducted by driving cars across the breakwater. Lizards and firecrackers made frequent contact. Carlos Eire's childhood was a little different from most. His father was convinced he had been Louis XVI in a past life. At school, classmates were attended by chauffeurs and bodyguards. Then, in January 1959, the world changed....

    Dataman says: "Like Watching a Stranger's Home Videos"
    "One of the best books I've "read" in years"

    What other book might you compare Waiting for Snow in Havana to and why?

    Carlos Eire writes in the surrealistic romantic style of all great Latin American writers. His story is vivid, innocent, and magical. It was a joy to hear.
