«Life in the Cuba of Tomorrow» by Bruce McCall 

«I love Cuban cigars, and this sways me more than it should,” McCall says of his own feelings toward the country. “The island’s history—Spanish exploitation, then American exploitation, then the dismal Castro era—is tragic, but Cuban musicians and artists still rule, attesting to an unquenchable creative impulse that has thrived amid all forms of chaos.”
