Finding Manana: A Memoir of a Cuban Exodus : In this unforgettable memoir, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mirta Ojito travels back twenty-five years to the event that brought her and 125,000 of her fellow Cubans to America: the 1980 mass exodus known as the Mariel boatlift. As she tracks down the long-forgotten individuals whose singular actions that year profoundly affected thousands on both sides of the Florida straits, she offers a mesmerizing glimpse behind Cuba's iron curtain - and recalls the reality of being a sixteen-year-old torn between her family's thirst for freedom and a revolution that demanded absolute loyalty. Recounting an immensely important chapter in the ever-evolving relationship between America and its neighbor to the south, Finding Manana is a major triumph by one of our finest journalists.
