Abstract:

Christopher Hunt sets his sights on Cuba, where crumbling but elegant facades overlook shady street activities, where vintage Ford Fairlanes rumble past Soviet Ladas in the fast lanes of eerily deserted boulevards, and where an aging Fidel Castro is struggling to maintain his grip on a population yearning for aire libre, or at least Air Jordans. When an inquisitive and mischievous American lands in Cuba and begins asking, "Where's Fidel?" the answers take him from Havana's squalid alleys to its steamy nightclubs, from Cuba's endless expanses of sugar cane to the craggy peaks that once sheltered the bearded dictator. Will Hunt find his man?
