Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Zac Aleman begins Perez's memoir tenderly as the author gazes at the house on G street that was his father's Cuban home. It's a formerly elegant building now moving toward ruin, a house that represents his past and that of many Cubans. So begins this ambitious memoir, which merges the personal and the political as it ranges from nineteenth-century Castilian Spain to revolutionary Cuba. Aleman's narration is just as ambitious. He smoothly recounts more than a century of tumult in a straightforward tone. His facility with the Spanish language adds to the presentation. Familial views of historical events shed light on the complicated relationship between the U.S. and Cuba. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
