Literary: New Books at People's Coop


New books in this week at People's Coop Books include:
Fidel Castro's own autobiography "My Life". $39.00 hardcover.

For years people have tried to persuade the leader of the Cuban Revolution to tell his own life story. Here, finally, Ignacio Ramonet, well-known activist and editor of Le Monde Diplomatique,has succeeded.

For the first time, in a series of probing interviews, Fidel Castro describes his life, from the 1950s all the way up to the present day. He discusses his parents, his earliest influences, the beginnings of the revolution, his relationship with Che Guevara, the Bay of Pigs, the Carter years, Cuban migration to the US. And along the way, Ramonet challenges Castro to discuss his views on a number of controversial questions, from human rights and freedom of the press to the repression of homosexuality and the survival of the death penalty, and he gives his opinion of other leaders, alive and dead, including George Bush and Tony Blair.

For those who can't afford the $39.00...or who are looking for a stocking stuffer:

"Che Handbook" by Hilda Bario and Gareth Jenkins. Hardcover originally $25.00 now $9.99

This is the most comprehensive and accessible photographic and iconic record of Che Guevara, including never-before-seen photographs and exclusive first-time interviews.

Hardcover |431 pp | ISBN:1840725028

Plus our usual selection of fine fiction, poetry, chidlren's books, humour, and current affairs. We are running low on some of the calendar favourites...so if you don't want to miss out on yours - better stop on by.
