The following cartoon was sent to me by Carlos Eire, the one who penned “Waiting for Snow in Havana”, the book that was sent to me yesterday and that I am about to finish reading. I cant remember the last time I devoured a book so quickly and so earnestly. It is truly a work of art.
I took the liberty of emailing Mr. Eire yesterday and thanking him profusely for such a beautiful and heartwarming memoir. To my surprise, Mr. Eire responded and had some very kind and supportive words about this blog. He also sent me the cartoon and stated:
I attach a small gift de los Reyes Magos, from the New Yorker. Maybe you’ve seen it before? I think Jay Nordlinger would like it.
I was humbled and honored at the same time.
