From the Archives: Dueling Castro Autobiographies

By Susan Harris

Fidel Castro has announced the publication of The Strategic Victory, the first volume of his memoirs. (The second volume:  The Final Strategic Counteroffensive.) For a possibly more accurate perspective, check out these extracts from Norberto Fuentes's Autobiography of Fidel Castro: chapter one, published in our May 2005 Cuba issue, and chapter twelve, published in October 2006 just after Castro handed over the reins to Raúl. Fuentes's book, in Anna Kushner's lively translation, is available from W. W. Norton.
