A Booktalk for ‘Telex’

There are reviews that declare a book good, even a masterpiece and then there are reviews that make you actually want to read the book.

Telex from Cuba has received several good reviews, but Carolyn See’s in today’s Washington Post makes you want to read it. She describes it as,

… a pure treat from the cover to the very last page. It’s the kind of thing you should stock up on to give sick friends as presents; they’ll forget their arthritis and pneumonia, I promise, once they walk into a land that’s gone now, but not yet quite forgotten: Cuba in the last few years before Fidel Castro took over.
