I'm not going to say any more, and let someone else have the first say. A few discussion questions in case they are needed:
1. Did Eire do a good job of painting the picture of his childhood?
2. What did you think of his characterization of his parents, "Louis XVI" and "Marie Antoinette"?
3. And what about those lizards?
4. Was there any political/cultural event in your childhood that affected who you became in a similar way to Fidel's takeover of Cuba affect on Carlos?
