"The Heroes of Cuba" - NYRB (Part I)

Just arrived in my mailbox:

The new edition of The New York Review of Books with the article, "The Heroes of Cuba," featuring blogger Yoani Sanchez among others, by Nik Steinberg and Daniel Wilkinson (May 27, 2010).

The article is not, to my knowledge, available on line yet.

I'll summarize the article here later but for now here's the opening paragraph:
"In a 1980 interview, Gabriel Garcia Marquez told The New York Times that he had spent three years writing a book about life in Cuba under Fidel Castro. But, he said, 'now I realize that the book is so critical that it could be used against Cuba, so I refuse to publish it.'"
Who knew?
