Anna Veltfort's superb book, Goodbye, My Havana, introduced me to a time and a land and a people I did not know at all. Veltfort writes and illustrates with such eloquence and passion about hard, repressive times, about courageous, loving times. Her voice is true and honest; it is without easy bitterness or rage. This book is about a deep life lived, about transformation, about personal dignity and freedom.
