Ruins - Achy Obejas This novel makes me want to learn more about Cuba. Ruins is about an "old" man who was once a young revolutionary. Living in Havana in the early 1990s, he conflicted between his persisting belief in the Revolution and the wasteland that Cuba has become and which nearly all of the Cubans in the novel want to escape. The book ended a little too soon for me, with a family mystery which was never quite resolved, but I still really enjoyed it.
