Out of 80 or so students in Cueto's graduating class of 1960 at the prestigious Belén prep school in Havana - where Castro graduated in 1945 - about 90 percent moved into exile, by Cueto's count. One recent afternoon at Catholic University in Washington - where Cueto graduated as valedictorian in 1965 - a dozen Belén classmates and relatives of classmates join an audience of 70 to hear Cueto talk about his book.
He's trying to change the exile community, too, one exile at a time. "I keep a record of a slow resurrection" of Cuba, he says. "Something to inform my compatriots in the U.S. that it's not what they think, and they should give it a chance."
After dinner with old friends, Cueto returns to the Emilioteca and his constant search for a more intimate understanding of the repercussions of a past that is never past.
