Summary
Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award. This acclaimed national best-seller is the definitive work on Che Guevara, the dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution. Anderson traces Che's extraordinary life from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle. With unprecedented access to personal archives, government documents, and rare interviews, Anderson reveals many details of Che's life that have long been cloaked in secrecy and intrigue. Meticulously researched and full of exclusive information, Che Guevara illuminates as never before this mythic figure who embodied the high-water mark of revolutionary Communism as a force in history. "The gifted bilingual narrator Armando Duran speaks both American English and the abundant Latin-American Spanish without a trace of accent from the other. His fluency with both languages synchronizes the messenger with the message. He enunciates every word with precision and chooses a pace that will keep listeners' attention for all 37 hours. Together, in language rich with personal and political details, both author and narrator produce a riveting biography of a career revolutionary." - AudioFile. "[An] exceptional and exciting biography....Anderson's up-close look, with beauty marks and tragic flaw so effortlessly rendered, brings the reader face to face with a man whose 'unshakable faith in his beliefs was made more powerful by his unusual combination of romantic passion and a coldly analytical mind.'...[A]n invaluable addition to the literature of American revolutionaries." - Booklist
