      “Our Woman in Havana,” New Cuba Book I’m Excited to be Agenting December 2, / 1 Comment / in News, Politics, History & Media, Philip Turner Book Productions / by Philip Turner It’s very good to see my literary agency client Vicki Huddleston is quoted in Jon Lee Anderson’s first look at Cuba since the death of Fidel Castro. While a book that discusses Cuban life today might be interesting on its own, Rainsford makes this book even more interesting by following the steps of Graham Greene (who wrote "Our Man in Havana"). This is where the history comes in with some fascinating contrasts between the Cuba of Greene's time and the Cuba Rainsford experiences/5(11).
