Loosing My Espanish

(2004)
A novel by

 
 
Oscar Delossantos is about to lose his job as a teacher at a Jesuit high school in Chicago. Rather than go quietly, he embarks on a valiant last history lesson that chronicles the flight from Cuba of his makeshift extended family.Evoking the struggle between nostalgia and the realities of the Cuban Revolution with both grit and lyricism, he inspires his students with an altogether dazzling reinterpretation of the Cuban-American experience.

By turns heartbreaking, funny, and brilliantly inventive, Loosing My Espanish is a singular debut.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
