In this memoir of her life in Cuba until she was fifteen years old when she went into exile, Dr. Uva de Aragón tells the first-person story of her closest relatives, as well as her first games, readings, trips, teachers, schools, and friends. With an agile prose and a fresh look, she reveals the pain of the loss of her father at an early age and the illusions of first loves, as well as delicious anecdotes about cultural personalities she had the privilege of knowing.

Bringing together an unprecedented number of extensive personal stories, this book shares the triumphs and heartbreaking moments experienced by some of the first Cubans to come to the United States after Fidel Castro took power in 1959. David Powell conducted extensive interviews with fifty-four persons and uses those interviews to tell the story of the refugees who left Cuba between 1959 and the 1962 Missile Crisis, as well as those who embarked on the Freedom Flights (1965-73).
