    One thought on “The Pérez Family”

    1. Twenty years after he successfully gained control of Cuba, Fidel Castro emptied the island of its jails, insane asylums, and other so called scum of the island. Known as the Mariel boat people for the port city that they launched from, thousands of unwanted Cubans as well as those fortunate to find space on a boat arrived in Miami in 1980. Much has been documented of the boat lifts and the friction between them and those Cubans who left prior to the revolution who then became successful business [...]

    2. Upon re-reading this book after twenty years, I'm deeply moved by its poignancy, and am keenly impressed with the power of Bell's story-telling. Although grounded in a specific historical time and place (which the author documents beautifully, and which is significant in and of itself), this book is universal in its themes of resilience, exile and home, the experience of immigration, grief and loss, deep love, and the close relationship between reality and fantasy. What is amazing about this boo [...]

    3. I remember this time period when the "boat people" were coming from Cuba, but I only met a few so I wasn't personally touched by it that much. This book brought home to me what it was like to leave one's life-long home on short notice with almost nothing, often not knowing where your relatives were or where you would be going. It was an interesting story, sometimes funny and sometimes very sad.

    4. I read this a long time ago, so I don't remember much in the way of specifics, but I do remember that I loved it. I didn't realize there was a movie-with Marisa Tomei!-I'll have to search it out. I'm also searching out more of Bell's books.

    5. Well, the book had a lot of interesting moments but the ending was a total surprise. In the movie version the ending was changed, it was a happy ending-no one died violently.

    6. I didn't know there was a movie--I would be curious to see it. The book was funny and sad and educational.
