30 Minutes visited local author and Cuba expert Tom Miller in his midtown Tucson back yard to discuss his latest book Cuba, Hot and Cold. It’s an informative read for road warriors and armchair travelers alike. You can find it on UA Press along with The Panama Hat Trail and Writing on the Edge.
Since his first visit to the island thirty years ago, Miller has shown us the real people of Havana and the countryside, the Castros and their government, and the protesters and their rigor. His first book on Cuba, Trading with the Enemy, brought readers into the “Special Period,” Fidel’s name for the country’s period of economic free fall. Cuba, Hot and Cold brings us up to date, providing intimate and authentic glimpses of day-to-day life.
