Reinhard Kleist
Castro


In October 1958, Karl Mertens, a young journalist, arrives in Havana, Cuba. Having read an interview with Fidel Castro in the New York Times, he sets out on behalf of a German newspaper to meet and interview the young leader. When he arrives, he finds himself in a country plunged into revolution. Quickly he becomes involved in its events. From the viewpoint of this young journalist, Castro presents a detailed look at the life and the political motivations of the Cuban ‘Máximo Lider’ Fidel Castro, from his childhood up until the present day.

Publisher SelfMadeHero invites you to celebrate the publication of the graphic biography Castro by Reinhard Kleist.
