About the Book

In 1959, a Communist revolution took the reins of government in Cuba. Many thousands, including author Andrea Bermúdez and members of her immediate family, sought exile in foreign lands. They felt fortunate to have chosen the United States to start life anew.

In One Immigrant in a World of Many: An American Story of Survival, Bermúdez details her struggle as a political exile who left her native country and learned to adapt to her new home in the United States. This memoir offers a look at the impact the Castro Revolution had on the lives of those who chose to leave their beloved island, Cuba, revealing experiences common to many immigrants as they embark on a new journey.

One Immigrant in a World of Many explores and redefines the American Dream, focusing on how survival is possible amidst the obstacles that must be overcome. Sprinkled with humor, Bermúdez discusses survival techniques as she shares her challenging, albeit captivating, world of learning to become the person she was meant to be while adapting to the cultural demands of her new homeland.
