Che with his own words, with his own photographs
Unique among the many books about Che Guevara this Self-Portrait
has been compiled by Che’s family, and uses exclusive material from his family’s private archives. Revealed for the first time is Che Guevara’s personal world, unveiling his extraordinary candor, irony, dry humor and passion.
Among the many astonishing texts by Che in this book, readers will find:
•two unpublished short stories and unpublished poetry
•unpublished letters to his close friends and family
•letters to colleagues and historic figures
•unpublished literary criticism
•journalism and analysis of world events
A dedicated amateur photographer, Che’s own photographs, including his self-portraits, are a stunning feature of this selection and have never before been published. Other photographs of Che, chosen from the Guevara family albums and from many of the iconic Che Guevara images, bring to light a surprisingly sensitive and artistic edge of the legendary revolutionary.
