  • Masticate And Swallow: Author speaks to Joy Club

    Fabio Alberto Hurtado was born in La Habana, Cuba in February 1971. He attended Cuban schools until fifth grade when his family left the nation in 1980.

    But while there he created memories, bonded with family and was forced to eat the dreaded malanga; what he described as the ugly-tasting cousin of the potato.
