Brothers

Brothers from Time to Time is the true story of a family’s experiences in the Cuban revolution. The elder Rivero is a journalist who flees Cuba when Fidel Castro abolishes its free press. Younger brother Adolfo Rivero becomes a leader in Castro’s regime. As soon as elder brother Emi Rivero sees that the regime is becoming a tyranny, he tries to overthrow it. Emi is captured and Adolfo recommends he be executed. Instead, Emi gets 30 years in jail. Adolfo himself is purged and imprisoned. As soon as both brothers are out of Cuba, they reconcile. This is history on a grand scale, with a powerful emotional impact.

“David Landau has written a riveting account of Cuba’s Communist revolution, told through the eyes of two brothers who began on opposite sides of the political barricades. Both intimate and revealing, Brothers is an indispensable guide to the catastrophe that followed, and by extension to the Bernie Sanders left which hopes to make socialist Cuba a model for America’s future.”

–David Horowitz, author of Radical Son
