Uneasy Witness in Utopian Cuba

By RICHARD EDER
The New York Times
February 6, 2004

In his cartooning days Jules Feiffer would portray the butterfly fecklessness of his urban neurotics by having them devise dances to their vague emotional or intellectual weathers. It is in this sense that Alma Guillermoprieto titles her book about a young New Yorker...

NO MIRRORS

By FABIOLA SANTIAGO
The Miami Herald
February 08, 2004

The oftentimes inexplicable dalliance of the world's intellectuals with Cuba's 45-year-old repressive regime lies at the heart of Alma Guillermoprieto's Dancing With Cuba: A Memoir of the Revolution.

Missed chance to shed light on Cuba

By ALAN PETER RYAN. Alan Peter Ryan, a novelist and journalist, edited "The Reader's Companion to Cuba." He lives in Rio de Janeiro
The Chicago Tribune
February 8, 2004

With only a small number of very fine books, Alma Guillermoprieto has evolved as one of our best literary reporters, with a special talent for penetrating the troubled inner life of her favorite subject, Latin America.

'Dancing With Cuba': Memories of Underdevelopment

By KATHA POLLITT
The New York Times
February 29, 2004

In 1969, Merce Cunningham offered to recommend his 20-year-old dance student Alma Guillermoprieto for a teaching job at the state-run National Schools of the Arts in Havana.

Dancing in Cuba, Dancing With Cuba: Two Women's Experiences

by DEBORAH JOWITT
the Village Voice

Burdsall lived through Castro's revolution — very close, in fact, to its epicenter; Guillermoprieto, puzzled and fascinated, underwent a personal revolution while trying to fathom the complex links between those brave days in Cuba's past and the Cuba she encountered.
