The Death of Che Guevara

The Death of Che Guevara Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his critically acclaimed epic first novel, Jay Cantor, author of Krazy Kat and Great Neck, draws on history, myth, and his own prodigious imagination to take on the life and death of revolutionary icon Che Guevara.

In his now famous progress through modern times, Ernesto “Che” Guevara, the scion of a liberal Argentine family, abandoned a medical career to become a revolutionary. A fiery comrade of Fidel Castros who joined him in overthrowing the Cuban government of Baptista, Che later broke with Castro to lead a guerrilla movement in Bolivia. As the novel charts Ches bold evolution, it also offers an incisive look at Latin Americas revolutionary struggles, an exploration of the nature of truth and storytelling, and a brilliant exegesis of the psychology of radical activisim.

Synopsis:

In this extraordinary first novel--large, powerful, many-faceted--Jay Cantor bring us into the life, the death, the world of Che Guevera.
