WithAn Innocent in Ireland(1995), David McFadden began his eccentric journeys to the heart of some of the world’s most unique island nations. Now McFadden rambles through the highs and lows of Cuba, home to cigars, Guantanamera, and of course Castro. The beautiful Caribbean landscape, along with Cuba’s rich history, culture, and uncertain future, lend themselves to the quirky eye and wry witticisms of our innocent Canadian guide.

Poking into the nation’s many corners, McFadden offers a series of vignettes of the people, cities,villages, roads, and countryside of the island the author refers to as “the most famous little country in the world.” Warm and colourful,An Innocent in Cubais a musical, sensuous, flirtatious, joyful tribute to the Cuban spirit in all its incarnations.

If your facts in the book are as accurate as the "perry king" incident, I feel sorry for the readers. Perry offered a poor girl $20 dollars and was arrested?
I was in that prison at the time, and
new perry, talked to him after playing tennis (yes tennis). He was guilty and readily admitted it. Only was upset that the parents of the girls, yes plural, turned him in after he stopped supporting the family.
Lots of innocents there....
