- "From inside this tightly controlled one-party state, Sarah Rainsford, the BBC's 'woman in Havana' for three years, reports on lives shaped by Fidel Castro's giant social experiment and how the nation feels as the six-decade rule of the Castros comes to an end. Seeking a window into pre-revolutionary Cuba, she searches for the ghosts of Graham Greene's Havana and the paths walked by other visiting writers (chiefly Ruby Hart Phillips, who covered Cuba from 1937-1961 for the New York Times) hooked on a city where 'every vice was permissible'. Through all these stories and those still being told, 'Our Woman in Havana' weaves an enthralling, atmospheric portrait of this enigmatic country as it teeters, once more, at a historic crossroads"-- Provided by publisher.
