Title: Portrait of a young Castro, drawn from his personal archive
Author: Jonathan Hansen
Abstract: How many biographies of a person are too many? Type “Fidel Castro” into a library database, and hundreds of books about Cuba’s long-omnipresent leader pop up. For American readers, the accounts of Tad Szulc, Georgie Anne Geyer and Robert Quirk from the 1980s and ’90s may be most familiar. But many other character assessments — fulsome and denunciatory — appeared in the years immediately following Castro’s improbable ascent to power in 1959.
