During the years to come, as he grew up in Glorytown, a neighborhood in the city of Cienfuegos, Eduardo hoped with all his might that their exit visa would be granted before he turned 15, the age at which he would be drafted into the army.
In this absorbing memoir, by turns humorous and heartbreaking, Eduardo Calcines recounts his boyhood and chronicles the conditions that led him to wish above all else to leave behind his beloved extended family and his home for a chance at a better future.

eye opening detail about communist cuba
eye opening detail about communist cuba, Riveting and sad story of the suffering the cuban people endure under Fidel. It amazed me to learn that even children were subject to bullying by the cuban government. it also amazed me to see that faith in god and the dream of freedom always prevails over tyranny. I enjoyed listening to the author voice while not a seasoned narrator you could hear the sincerity in his voice.
