Miguel Barnet je leta 1964 po naključju v časopisu zasledil rubriko, kjer je bil objavljen intervju z moškim starim sto štiri leta. Obiskal ga je v Domu veteranov in zapisal njegovo pričevanje. To je zgodba o Estebanu Monteju, ubežnemu sužnju, cimarronu, rojenemu na suženjski plantaži sladkorja. Želja po svobodi je bila močnejša od strahu pred povračilnimi ukrepi sužnjelastnika, zato je kmalu pobegnil in se dolgo časa skrival v kubanskih gozdovih. Po odpravi suženjstva je poprijel za vsakršno delo in sodeloval v vojni za neodvisnost Kube. Njegovo pričevanje je antropološki vpogled v življenje in navade Kubancev in Kubank ob koncu 19. stoletja, prav tako pa izvrstna priložnost za osebni vpogled v življenje posameznika in njegovega boja za svobodo

In addition to Rachel's narrative, the voices of stagehands, journalists, friends, enemies, and gossips depict an accurate portrait of the customs during the Cuban belle époque
Afro-Cuban religions by Miguel Barnet( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term palo refers to the ritual use of trees and plants, which are believed to have magical powers." "Africans who were brought to Cuba as slaves had to recreate their old traditions in their new Caribbean context. As their African heritage collided with Catholicism and with Native American and European traditions, certain African gods and traditions became more prominent while others lost their significance in the new Cuban culture. The author also discusses the roles of music and dance as forms of Cuban religious expression and describes the specific instruments and symbols they employ. The book ends with an enthusiastic depiction of Barnet's recent research journey to West Africa, the Land of the Orishas."--Jacket

"Miguel Barnet's A True Story is based on the life of Julián Mesa, a Cuban living in New York City. The novel spans the years between the 1930s to the 1980s as the protagonist moves from Cuba to the US. Throughout the novel Julián, a building supervisor in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, recounts his life beginning with his early childhood years in the Cuban countryside and ending on the brink of tears as he dreams about an island which he dreams of seeing again. His account tells of the brutal work of the Cuban peasant in the sugarcane fields as well as the oppressive unemployment situation in Havana during the 1930s and 40s. Arriving in New York before the triumph of the Revolution in search of better opportunities, Julián struggles to keep Cuba alive within him through language, newspapers, social clubs, radio, and letters. A True Story highlights the Hispanic community in New York, especially the close relationships between Cubans and Puerto Ricans, and acknowledges the important events that took place in this city which are fundamental to the history of Cuba."--Back cover
