Author: Hemingway watched Che’s firing squad massacres ‘while sipping Daiquiris’

“Castro has brought very high literacy and great health-care to his country. His personal magnetism is powerful, his presence is commanding.” (Barbara Walters.)

Humberto Fontova says you don’t know squat about Cuba.

“[A]lmost everything most people (except Cuban exiles) think they know about Cuba isn’t just wrong — it’s almost the exact opposite of the truth,” Fontova, a refugee from Castro’s Cuba and the author of numerous books about the country, told The Daily Caller in an interview about his new book, ”The Longest Romance: The Mainstream and Fidel Castro.”

“You really get tired of people citing ‘The Godfather II’ to make intellectual points about Cuba,” Fontova added, explaining why he decided to write his new tome. ”If this sounds hyperbolic, here’s the man widely hailed as the top news source for Americans under 40 nowadays: ‘All I know about pre-Castro Cuba I learned from the Godfather II!’”

The quote comes from Daily Show host Jon Stewart.

While Fontova writes about influential Cuban agents in the United States and how the mainstream media continues to suck up to the Castro brothers in his new book, perhaps his most shockingly lurid anecdote is of writer Ernest Hemingway, who lived in Cuba at the time of the Cuban Revolution.
