- About the Author
When Pini was a little boy, his Cuban-American family always spoke with mistrust of a mysterious “Them”: the big-shot capitalists, the good-old-boy southern crackers, the rich and the powerful.
Now that he’s grown into a worldly, successful adult, however, the only “Them” that still mystifies Pini is his own family.
