An American Housewife in HavanaBook - 2003
"Isadora Tattlin is the American wife of a European energy consultant posted to Havana in the 1990s. Wisely, the witty Mrs. Tattlin began a diary the day her husband informed her of their new assignment. One of the first entries is her shopping list of things to take, including six gallons of shampoo. The record of her daily life in Cuba raising her two small children, entertaining her husband's clients (among them, Fidel Castro himself), and contending with chronic shortages of, well ... everything (on the street, tourists are hounded not for money but for soap) is stunning."--Hardcover jacket.
