In this Spanish-language edition, Che Guevara's widow remembers a great revolutionary romance tragically cut short by Che's assassination in Bolivia.

La viuda del Che Guevara recuerda el gran romance revolucionario trágicamente acortado por el asesinato del Che en Bolivia.

When Aleida March first met Che Guevara, she was a twenty-year-old combatant from the provinces of Cuba, he an already legendary revolutionary and larger-than-life leader. And yet there was another, more human side to Che, one Aleida was given special access to, first as his trusted compañera and later as the love of his life.

With great immediacy and poignancy, Aleida recounts the story of their epic romance-their fitful courtship against the backdrop of the Cuban revolutionary war, their marriage at the war's end and the birth of their four children, up through Che's tragic assassination in Bolivia less than ten years later. Featuring excerpts from their letters, nearly one hundred never-before-seen photographs from their private collection, and a moving short story Che wrote for Aleida, here is an intimate look at the man behind the legend and the tenacious, courageous woman who knew him best-a story of passionate love, wrenching sacrifice, and unwavering heroism.

Cuando Aleida March primero conoció al Che Guevara, ella era una combatiente de veinte años del interior de Cuba, él era un ya legendario revolucionario y un exuberante líder. Pero había una faceta más humana del Che a la cual Aleida accedió exclusivamente, primero como su compañera de confianza y luego como el amor de su vida.

Con gran inmediatez y agudez, Aleida relata la historia de su romance épico -su cortejo intermitente contra el trasfondo de la guerra revolucionaria cubana, su casamiento cuando terminó la guerra y el nacimiento de sus cuatro hijos, hasta el asesinato trágico del Che en Bolivia menos de diez años después. Incluye fragmentos de sus cartas, casi cien fotografías nunca antes vistas de la colección privada y un conmovedor cuento corto sobre el Che escrito por Aleida, este libro es un retrato íntimo del hombre detrás de la leyenda y la mujer tenaz y valiente que más lo conocía -un cuento sobre amor apasionado, sacrificio desgarrador y firme heroísmo.

Conceived the night of Che Guevara's burial in 1967, Gabriel McKenzie is inextricably bound up in the history and politics of his native Chile. Twenty-four years on, and still a virgin, Gabriel returns from Manhattan exile to confront his legacy: a Don Juan father and a country preparing for the five-hundredth anniversary of America's "discovery." Into Gabriel's quest for manhood and identity enter one iceberg, a faithful if eccentric nanny, and a whole host of fantastical characters.
