Tim Wendel “Habana Libre”
July 17th, 2013
A beautiful Cuban showgirl who’s married to her country’s more famous baseball player escapes to the sea, in Tim Wendel‘s novel “Habana Libre.”
Only a boy and a boat and a belief in the American dream keep her afloat.
Planning to rendezvous with her husband after an exhibition game in El Norte, the showgirl risks everything, only to discover that crossing the straits might be easier than spanning allegiances.
Set against the backdrop of actual games played between the Cuba National Team and the Baltimore Orioles, “Habana Libre” is the story of people caught between home and hope.
