Publisher's Summary

Pultizer Prize-winner Mirta Ojito offers the intriguing story of her exodus from Cuba. In 1980, 25,000 Cuban immigrants arrived in America, dubbed Marielitos for the port from which they departed. Ojito was 16. This audiobook is both a detailed history of the Mariel boatlift and the touching memoir of an immigrant who struggled to find herself in a new world.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    "Excellent-Brought me to tears!!!"

    This book truely gave me a better understanding of what type of people Cubans are and what the Cubans have and still are going thru in Cuba. I came to the USA when I was 6 in 1972 and even though my parents told me of the struggles I didn't quite get it...until now. A must read for all, especially Cuban-Americans.

    Story
    "Excelente novela del éxodo del Mariel en Cuba de los 80"

    Novela narrada por la autora del libro que cuenta la experiencia propia vivida por ella en su juventud cuando, producto del ingreso de un bus a la embajada de Perú en La Habana, se produjo un conflicto diplomático entre Perú y Cuba, ya que el gobierno peruano se negó a entregar a los asilados. En este conflicto se vio envuelto luego EEUU, quien autorizó, con aquiescencia de Fidel Castro, que cubanos residentes en EEUU pudieran ir a buscar en naves mercantes a sus familiares. Lo que Jimmy Cárter no previó fue el aprovechamiento de Fidel Castro, quien autorizó el zarpe de las naves en la medida que también se llevarán a otras personas especialmente seleccionadas, a los que el régimen llamaba los indeseables, como reclusos, homosexuales y toda persona que significará una carga. Producto de ese éxodo llegaron a Miami cerca de 126.000 cubanos, produciéndose una oleada de problemas en Miami en particular que llevó incluso a Jimmy Carter a perder la reelección. Novela muy documentada, muy bien escrita y que emociona porque proviene de la mano de una persona que vivió en carne propia los acontecimientos del puente marítimo del puerto del Mariel.

    Story
    "Excelente descripción de Cuba desde su realidad"
    Would you consider the audio edition of El Manana to be better than the print version?

    La narración hecha por la autora es emocionante y revela de viva voz la historia de los Marielitos, pero en carne propia. Muy recomendable


    What did you like best about this story?

    La historia contada con los ojos de una niña y el rigor periodístico de una reportera
