Synopsis: A daring debut novel about a woman’s love affair with Che Guevara by the acclaimed young author of In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd

Selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Ana Menéndez’s story collection In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd was hailed by the Times’s book critic as "powerful" and "achingly wise." Now, in her first novel, Loving Che, Menéndez delivers an astonishing, intimate portrait of revolutionary Cuba as witnessed by an elderly woman recalling her secret love affair with the world’s most dashing, charismatic rebel, Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

The story opens in contemporary Miami, where for years a young Cuban woman has been searching in vain for details of her birth mother. All she knows of her past is that her grandfather fled the turbulent Havana of the 1960s for Miami with her in tow, and pinned to her sweater—possibly by her mother—were a few treasured lines of a Pablo Neruda poem. These facts remain her only tenuous links to her history, until a mysterious parcel arrives in the mail. Inside the soft, worn box are layers of writings and photographs. Fitting these pieces together with insights she gleans from several trips back to Havana, the daughter reconstructs the life of her mother, her youthful affair with the enigmatic Che, and the child she bore by the handsome rebel.

Loving Che is a brilliant recapturing of revolutionary Cuba, the changing social mores, the hopes and disappointments, the excitement and terror of the times. It is also an erotic fantasy, a glimpse into the private life of a beloved public figure, and an exquisitely crafted meditation on memory, history, and storytelling. Finally, Loving Che is a triumphant unveiling of how the stories we tell about others ultimately become the story of ourselves.

About the Author: Ana Menendez is the daughter of Cuban exiles who fled to Los Angeles in the 1960s before settling in Miami in the 1980s. Loving Che is her first novel and has been translated into eleven languages. Her story collection In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd has also been translated into eleven languages. She lives in Miami Beach.
