From Publishers Weekly
PW reported that Didion's style, "while it suffers overload, will delight her readers as she swims in the mainstream of the growing run of 'Miami' books." She portrays today's Miami as a hotbed of conspiracy and endless meetings among wealthy Cuban-Americans plotting Castro's overthrow.

From Library Journal
To Didion, contemporary Miami is a "tropical capital" closer in ambiance to Caracas or Bogota than Atlanta or Boston, a city shaped by the Cuban community and its dominating exile mentality. The objective here, however, is not so much a profile of the city as a political analysis of the Miami Cuban minda mind, we are told, that remains obsessed with el exilio (the exile), la lucha (the struggle), and a deep and bitter sense of betrayal of the expatriate cause by the U.S. government from Kennedy to Reagan. As in her earlier Salvador , Didion brings the novelist's ear and journalist's eye to her work. The result is a masterful polemic. A similar though less analytical book is David Rieff's new Going to Miami: exiles, tourists, and refugees in the New America (Little, Brown, 1987). Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
