Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life

Jon Lee Anderson, Author, Armando Durn, Read by , read by Armando Duran. Blackstone Audio $44.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4332-7066-6

The incredible life of the Cuban revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara is documented in this thorough, compulsively engaging 1997 biography and inspiration for Steven Soderbergh's 2008 biopic. Beginning with Che's childhood in Argentina, Andersen covers every possible aspect of his subject's life—from Che's first encounter with Fidel and Raul Castro in Mexico City through the Cuban revolution to his failed attempt at reform in the African Congo—leaving no event, personal or political, unanalyzed. Armando Duran gives a brilliant performance that captures Che in all his contradictions. Duran displays his inherent acting ability in this reading that does full justice to the prose and never fails to captivate despite the near 37-hour length. A Grove Press hardcover. (Oct.)
