9781920888251: Che: A Memoir

In a new, expanded edition of a best-selling Ocean classic, Castro describes a historic political partnership that changed the face of Cuba and Latin America. He vividly portrays Che—the man, the revolutionary, and the thinker—recounting in detail his last days with Che in Cuba, giving a remarkably frank assessment of the Bolivian mission.

Fidel Castro, in an unusually gentle, quite emotional mood, remarks, “For me it has been hard to accept the idea that Che is dead. I have dreamed of him often, that I spoke with him, that he was alive . . .” Includes Castro’s speech on the return of Che’s remains to Cuba in 1997.

About the Author:

Fidel Castro went into exile on his release from prison after initiating an armed attack against the Batista dictatorship. One night in Mexico he met a young Argentine doctor Ernesto Guevara. They talked until dawn, sharing their ideas and dreams, when "Che" agreed to join the expedition back to Cuba to restore popular rule. The rest is history David Deutschmann is an Australian author whose recent books include the anthologies Fidel Castro Reader (2004) and Che Guevara Reader (2003).

Book Description Ocean Press, Australia, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this book, Fidel Castro writes with candour and affection about his legendary partner. Castro s personal recollections of Che Guevara paint an intense, affectionate portrait of the greatest revolutionary the world has ever known. Fidel Castro has remarked: For me, it has been hard to accept the idea that Che is dead. I ve dreamed of him often, that I spoke with him, that he was alive. Now, through the words of the surviving half of the legendary partnership that brought the Latin American dream of a people s revolution so vividly to life, Che lives again. Castro draws a vivid, breathing picture of the whole Che - friend, revolutionary, artist, thinker and man - in a fond reminiscence that records the personal side of a historic partnership. A unique first-hand document of perhaps the most important political union of the 20th Century, Che: A Memoir By Fidel Castro offers readers the opportunity to gain a human view of an association that has become mythologised to the point of impenetrability. Including a detailed account of Castro s last days with Che in Cuba, a remarkably frank assessment of the Bolivian mission, and a transcript of Fidel s speech given on the return of Che s remains in 1997, this is a chance to cut through the legend and rediscover the living core of the greatest radical story ever told. It also contains several previously unpublished photographs, both of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro. Bookseller Inventory # AAT9781920888251
