Praise for Girl Like Che Guevara

“Amusing, observant. . . . Doval’s sense of place and devastating depiction of prejudice in 1980s Cuba make this a worthwhile debut.”
The Miami Herald

“[A] piquant coming-of-age novel.”
O magazine

“Absolutely remarkable . . . explodes with brilliance.”
—Carlos Eire, National Book Award-winning author of Waiting for Snow in Havana

“A rich and perceptive portrayal of daily life in Cuba.”
Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“Written in Lourdes’ vulnerable, believable voice, this moving first novel describes the particulars of living under Cuban communism while skillfully articulating ‘the pieces of a childhood inexorably left behind.’”
—Booklist

“Doval provides an intimate portrait of life inside Communist Cuba in this absorbing [debut] . . . [as well as] sensitive characterizations and rich picture of Havana and the beguiling Cuban landscape.” 
Publishers Weekly
