Book Review – The Beggar’s Opera (Winnipeg Free Press)

Really terrific review of The Beggar’s Opera  in The Winnipeg Free Press, but warning — it contains a couple of spoilers. What I do like about the review, however, are these comments:

“The Beggar’s Opera pays loving and detailed homage to the unique beauty of the island nation, both the capital and the countryside, respects the complicated integrity of Fidel Castro and creates, at last, a popular Cuban hero.

“Ricardo Ramirez, head of the major crimes unit of the Cuban National Revolutionary Police, could easily invade and captivate international crime television, a field long dominated by American and British cops.”

Very nice, and thanks, Lesley Hughes, for such a great review!
