Description-
  • In LOVING CHE, Menendez delivers an astonishing, intimate portrait of revolutionary Cuba as witnessed by an elderly woman recalling her secret love affair with the world's most dashing, charismatic rebel, Ernesto "Che" Guevara. The story opens in contemporary Miami, where a young Cuban woman has for years been searching in vain for details of her birth mother. All she knows is that her mother delivered her into the hands of her grandfather, who fled Havana for Los Angeles with baby in tow. The quest for her mother seems hopeless until a mysterious parcel containing writings and photographs arrives in the mail. Along with several trips back to Havana, the daughter fits the pieces together and reconstructs the life of her mother, her youthful affair with the enigmatic Che and the child she bore by the handsome rebel.

About the Author-
  • Ana Menendez is the daughter of Cuban exiles. She worked as a journalist for six years with THE MIAMI HERALD and THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER in California. She is a graduate of NYU's creative writing program where she was a NEW YORK TIMES fellow. Menendez lives in Istanbul with her husband, a NEW YORK TIMES reporter. Her collection of short stories, IN CUBA I WAS A GERMAN SHEPHERD, has been translated into eight languages. LOVING CHE is her first novel.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine When a young woman from Miami goes in search of the mother she never met, she receives an anonymous package with old letters and paintings that tell the story of a passionate woman who had an affair with Che Guevara. The daughter's voice is read in a tone filled with longing; she drops her voice at appropriate points to accentuate secrets being whispered and mysteries being pondered. The mother's letters are read in an older, loving tone filled with sadness and poetry. The side-endings are not always appropriate, like the middle of a young boy yelling, interupting the flow of the narration. J.F.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
