Cuba welcomes the Carnival Cruise ship Adonia today. It sure beats a raft for escapees. Back in 2008, I penned a novel called The Castro Gene, which featured a young boxer and a megalomaniac hedge fund manager who manipulated financial markets. He bought up shares of Carnival Cruise Lines when he figured out that the U.S. would lift the embargo on Cuba. The Castro Gene back to the Rat Pack era and won some awards. I’m still waiting for the movie! Tell Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Jake Gyllenhaal. You can find the book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
