  • CheA syllable. But too, a man, a story, a social narrative. To hundreds of millions of people (maybe a billion??) nothing more need be said. Just that one syllable.(view spoiler)[ This cropped version of the original photo by Alberto Diaz (Korda) has been called the world’s most famous photo. Of course the subject is both revered and hated, both sentiments often based on little more than ignorance. (hide spoiler)]Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, auth [...]


  • Margaret RandallIn her latest book Che on My Mind (expected publication date October 7, 2013 by Duke University Press), Margaret Randall distills her experiences over a lifetime of work as a feminist poet, writer, photographer and social activist, considering throughout what Che Guevara has meant to her personally, artistically, and politically. This is not a biography of Che Guevara, or a memoir, or a work of historical analysis. Throughout, Randall paints with a wide brush, relying on her own [...]


  • A few people asked me why I was reading this book. The simplest response is that Che has become an icon but few understand what he represents and who he was. Young people wear t-shirts and his image has been commercially exploited (not unlike images of Malcolm X). There are many books written about Guevara, but this slim volume does offer a condensed version of who he was. The author is 80-year-old Margaret Randall, an unapologetic leftist. She has, it seems, begun to modify some of her beliefs [...]

A New Yorker by birth she has spend many years outside of the United States. She lived in Mexico from 1969-1980 where she co-edited El Corno Emplumado. She lived in Nicaragua in the early 1980s and also Spain and Cuba. She also visited Vietnam in the last days of US involvement. Randall lost her citizenship while marr [...]


  • This is a wonderful contribution to revolutionary biography, with Margaret Randall at her sharpest and most nuanced, tracing the impact of Che's life and legend and legacy on her own. She traces the continuing development of her own understanding of Che from her joining the protests in Mexico City at the time of his execution through her many years in Latin American social movements and her work in Cuba, where she became close to a number of Che's family and comrades. Her prose is luminous, the [...]


  • Margaret Randall the feminist poet and author writes a totally honest and frank memoir of her thoughts on Che Guevara. The only knowledge I have of Che is the iconic image of his handsome face used worldwide and I found her recollections of friendships with his compatriots and family particularly fascinating and thought provoking. She certainly doesn't shy away from criticism of some of his actions and I found this memoir, won as a giveaway, has piqued my interest in looking at the man behind t [...]
