“Until now no one has tried to find out what the average Cuban, “the man in the street”, feels about the Revolution, about the Castro regime, about the future of Cuba.  In this book Warren Miller takes you through the back stairs of revolution into the streets, cafes and homes of Cuba – and asks the questions you would like to ask.  He talks not only to businessmen, small storekeeper's, actors and intellectuals but to expensive call girls who catered to Yankee tourists and to the American gangsters in the casinos.  In short, he shows what has never been shown before: what it is like to be a Cuban in Cuba today.  He has also talked to Cuban refugees in Miami and shows what it is like to be a Cuban exile.”
