The book “Hugo Chávez: Mi primera vida”, of the renowned intellectual Ignacio Ramonet (Spain, 1943) was presented last Thursday at the headquarters of the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC), in the Cuban central city of Sancti Spiritus.
Presenting this title, Jorge Silverio, president of the subsidiary of Literature of UNEAC, said that this text shows us a different view of a man we are used to, in what he considered a very close dialogue with a human and outstanding Chavez.
This volume of about 700 pages, published by the Editorial José Martí, also praised the exquisite photographs and map of Venezuela (with the places of residence of Chavez between 1954 and 1999).
One of the photos shows the first meeting with the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, in Havana, on December 13, 1994.
Silverio stressed that Ramonet managed to present a text with outstanding stories, readings and even the education received.
