Synopsys

When God receives a request from Fátima to help prevent a war between Fidel Castro and JFK, he asks his son, Jesus, to return to Earth and diffuse the conflict. On his island, Fidel Castro faces protests on the streets and realizes that he is about to be overthrown. Alone, surrounded, and aware that the end is fast approaching, he plays his last card. Meanwhile, Christ arrives on Earth and teams up with Fátima, who is convinced she can create a miracle to avoid the final battle between JFK and Fidel Castro and save the world as we know it. At the end, something really extraordinary happens!

Humorous, rich with metaphor, and refreshingly imaginative, The Tragedy of Fidel Castro was chosen as the book-of-the-month and book-of-the-year by Os Meus Livros magazine.

Reviews

“Novels like The Tragedy of Fidel Castro are the untamed mustangs of fiction that, unlike most other books, run wild and free, contemptuous of the confinement that the corral of ordinary classification would imprison them in.” –  The American Culture

“João Cerqueira’s novel is an energetic, bizarre, and extremely clever take on two heavily fictionalized leaders’.” – Bullet Reviews

The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is a phantasmagoric odyssey through a highly imaginative prose universe of discovery and inquest. It’s a magic realism hybrid of sacrificial lambs and Revolution, capitalistic decadence, and celestial consequence. I expect that this rich and unique narrative voice will illuminate a phosphorescent trajectory in the future annals of the New Millennial World Lit!” – Mark Spitzer – Toad Suck Review Editor, Professor of Writing at the University of Central Arkansas

”Fans of Rushdie and similar authors will find a lot to enjoy here.” – Melbourne Review of Books

The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is very much recommended reading for those who like religious and alternative history reads, not to be missed” – Midwest Book Review

”The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is a religious and political satire, without doubt, worthy of not only consumption but also contemplation” – Journal of Global Faultlines

”The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is both a superb read and surprisingly hilarious” – BookIdeas

”Una estupenda novela que comienza como una sátira y termina siendo una obra de profundas reflexiones sobre el bien y el mal.” – El Nuevo Herald

”The seesaw effect and wandering plot line is what keeps this from being a work of genius; as it is, it should become a cult favorite.” – IndieReader

”A dizzying display of hyperbolic imagination.” – ForeworReviews

”Cerqueira shows potential to be a big name in the future.” – Contemporary Literary Review India

This book has amazing depth and connections that bear repeated scrutiny and investigation. The Tragedy of Fidel Castro is highly relevant to our society today, and I highly recommend it.” – Portland Book Review
