    You've reminded me of other books that I love. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is one that did make me cry when I read it.

    I can't believe I forgot about Maya Angelou -- I loved that book. And To Kill a Mockingbird -- love that too. I keep meaning to read that Che Guevara biography but haven't yet.

    Katya - the Che book is a commitment - the hard cover is 800+ pages, but very well written and it flows pretty fast.

    I was always intrigued by this man because of his role in the Cuban revolution and the vastly conflicting portrayals of him from my parents and their friends vs. what seemed to be the rest of the world. I think Anderson provides a fair and objective portrayal.
