    La Tribu. Retratos de Cuba, de Carlos Manuel Álvarez Rodríguez

    La Tribu. Retratos de Cuba, de Carlos Manuel Álvarez Rodríguez

    El día en que Carlos Manuel Álvarez Rodríguez presentaba en The Wild Detectives su libro La Tribu. Retratos de Cuba, Miguel Díaz Canel se convertía en el sucesor de raúl castro. Javier García del Moral, uno de los jefes de la librería, no pasó el detalle por alto: “en 60 años el gobierno cubano ha cambiado de presidente sólo 3 veces. Hoy es una de ellas”. Buen contexto, diría yo.
