9780141026268: My Life

He is the only world leader to have outlasted nine US presidents, has survived over 600 assassination attempts and remains one of the twentieth century’s most controversial figures.

Here Castro tells his story in full for the first time, speaking openly about everything from his parents and earliest influences to his imprisonment, guerrilla war and the Cuban revolution and on to the Bay of Pigs, the missile crisis and his relationship with Che Guevara. He also remembers the people he knew, from John F. Kennedy to Ernest Hemingway. Whatever your views on Castro are, this is an essential record of an incredible life – and even more extraordinary times.

Whatever happens after Castro has gone, this book will provide an indispensable perspective on his record ( Guardian)

Castro's life has been extraordinary and he can tell a good story ( Evening Standard)

A fascinating account (, Books of the Year Metro)

Extraordinary (, Books of the Year Observer)
