Waiting For Snow in Havana

"I came from a loving, stable Catholic family with good values. The next thing I knew, Castro had people parading through the streets, asking for those who didn't believe in the revolution to be executed. My whole world was turned upside down. In fact, I remember exactly where I was when my mother told me that Castro had taken over and I had exactly the same emotions Eire describes in his book."

Read Olga Dazzo's story, a Peter Paner who is now the first female CEO of a health insurance company in Michigan; and who has not been able to read Carlos Eire's book:

Olga Dazzo, president and CEO of Physicians Health Plan of Mid-Michigan since 1996, confesses there's a memoir she's been unable to read. "I can't get past the beginning," she says. "I told the author when I met him in Miami that it's just too painful."
