"With the exception of the worship of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, no worship is promoted more in Cuba than the worship of Ernest Hemingway...the Hemingway cult … was created more as a tourist attraction and propoganda device than anything else.” (Late leftist Argentinian author Jacobo Timmerman, after visiting Cuba in 1987.)
