We’re excited to announce Tom Miller has been named a New Mexico-Arizona Book Award winner for his book Cuba, Hot and Cold. In the Travel Book category, Miller shares the honor with Ashley Biggers for her book Eco-Travel New Mexico, from our AUP peers at the University of New Mexico Press.
Since his first visit to the island thirty years ago, Tom Miller has shown us the real people of Havana and the countryside, the Castros and their government, and the protesters and their rigor. His first book on Cuba, Trading with the Enemy, brought readers into the “Special Period,” Fidel’s name for the country’s period of economic free fall. Cuba, Hot and Cold brings us up to date, providing intimate and authentic glimpses of day-to-day life.
