Graham Greene saw the Castros rise; Sarah Rainsford watched them leave.

From the street where Wormold, the hapless hero of Greene's Our Man in Havana, plied his trade, BBC foreign correspondent Rainsford reports on Fidel's reshaping of a nation, and what the future holds for ordinary Cubans now that he and his brother Raul are no longer in power.

Through tales of literary ghosts and forgotten reporters, believers in the revolution and dissidents, entrepreneurs optimistic about the new Cuba and the disillusioned still looking for a way out, Our Woman in Havana paints an enthralling picture of this enigmatic country as it enters a new era.
