These are the reviews writers live for: "In "Fidel's Last Days," Roland Merullo takes readers on a fictional thrill ride filled with so much danger and drama that they won't want it to end."
Thank you, Chuck Leddy, reviewer for the Boston Globe ("A thrilling ride in Castro plot"):
Eleventh book. Think about that. How many writers can pump out so many, in such different genres (this and another are both thrillers, love stories, coming-of-age, memoir, technique (golf), an uproarious and cheeky trilogy about spirituality, politics, and the hereafter...)? This is talent.
Our Fiction Book Club is reading Roland's Dublin International Prize-nominated Breakfast with Buddha for our March book, which, not so incidentally also is the community read for the nearby Town of Wayland that month; Fidel's Last Days is our bonus book for our meeting and, lucky us, he's gracing us with his presence. We hope he'll talk about both. I promise to post some pictures.
