(p.313) Chapter Seven Antonio Núñez Jiménez on Pico Turquino (1945)
Cuba's Wild East
Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on Antonio Núñez Jiménez and Herbert Matthews. It concentrates on the years leading up to the triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959. Matthews's knowledge and understanding of Latin America allowed him to understand what was happening in Cuba. He became a hero for oppositional forces inside and outside Cuba. This chapter describes Núñez Jiménez's climb to Pico Turquino. It also addresses the only significant English novelist to have written about Oriente: Graham Greene visited Santiago in November 1957. This visit was refracted in his 1958 novel, Our Man in Havana. This novel seemed to parody spy novels that hadn't yet been written.
