I am reading Che Guevara by Jon Lee Anderson and enjoying it more than I thought I would. If you’re one of Che’s young admirers, there’s plenty here to confirm that emotion. If, like me, you suspect that he was a murderous fanatic, there’s plenty here to confirm that. This is a true biography, not a hagiography or demonization.
