Chapter Fourteen: “Cuba’s Salsa Culture”

This is chapter 14 in my audio novel: The Pope, His Chamberlain, the Jinetera, and Fidel: a novel about Cuba, prostitution and the Catholic Church. For previous chapters, please scroll down.

In this chapter, note the connection between property and the defense of the revolution. “Liberation of Cuba” would mean that rich Miamians would return to “reclaim” the homes and businesses now belonging to previously propertyless ordinary Cubans. Defending those homes and businesses against Miamians (and other U.S. “entrepreneurs”) represents a major reason why the clear majority of Cubans defend the revolution. They don’t want to be turned out of the homes they now own.
