When the Cuban Revolution triumphed in 1959, Usnavy was just a young man and eagerly signed on for all of its promises. But as the years passed, the sacrifices outweighed the glories and he has now become increasingly isolated in his revolutionary zeal. Things seem to brighten up when he stumbles upon what may or may not be a priceless Tiffany lamp that reveals a family secret. But now Usnavy is faced with a choice between love for his family and the Revolution that has shaped his entire life.

A fantastic story that doubles as a vivid portrait of life in Havana during the height of the 'Special Period'. Beautifully written and completely riveting.

I loved this book! It's a great story of a man coming to terms with holding on to his ideals and facing reality. There's also a little family mystery mixed in there for good measure.
