Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now a major motion picture directed by Walter Salles starring Gael García Bernal (Y tu Mamá También, Amores Perros).

A special movie tie-in edition of Che Guevara's youthful travel diaries published to coincide with the release of the movie The Motorcycle Diaries.

This new, expanded edition features a new translation; exclusive, unpublished photos taken by the 23-year-old Ernesto on his journey across a continent; and a tender preface by Aleida Guevara offering an insightful perspective on her father — the man and the icon.

Review:

"This high-spirited travel diary...mixes lyrical observation, youthful adventure and anti-imperialist political analysis....[T]his candid journal, part self-discovery, part fieldwork, glimmers with portents of the future revolutionary." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Full of high drama and comedy, The Motorcycle Diaries is the story of a remarkable road journey....No biographical study or understanding of Che Guevara is complete without the reading of his diaries..." Midwest Book Review

Review:

"As his journey progresses, Guevara's voice seems to deepen, to darken, colored by what he witnesses in his travels." January Magazine
