When Batista’s bombs hit the club during a party, the Americans finally grasp that their long comfortable tenure in Cuba is at an end. When the rebels invade, they throw a party in its bombed-out dance hall. “Soldiers and locals, mill workers and cane cutters and their children all danced, careful not to step in the charred hole in the center of the tile dance floor” (291).
