Gusanos by John Sayles

Book Description

Award-winning writer John Sayles's critically acclaimed novel explores fifty years of Cuban-American relations. Set in Miami in 1981, Los Gusanos is the vivid and moving account of one extended family's life in Cuba and the United States. With pathos and understanding, Sayles introduces us to a memorable range of charactersyoung, old, black, and whiteall of whom are struggling to make a new life in their adopted country while haunted by the memories of Cuba. Taking as its title the derogatory term Castro used to describe those who fled to Miami after he came to power, Los Gusanos is beautifully rendered; a deterministic study of who will be the casualty and who the survivor in a time of political upheaval.
