A Vibrant Mosaic of Cuban Hustle

The Cuban hustle, a term coined by Pérez, captures the spirit of a people who have learned to navigate the complexities of a nation in perpetual motion. From the ingenious street vendors to the tireless workers, Cubans have developed a distinct ingenuity that allows them to make a living amidst scarcity and bureaucracy.

Through engaging vignettes, Pérez illustrates the diverse manifestations of the Cuban hustle. We encounter "jitangueros," enterprising individuals who transform dilapidated cars into makeshift taxis, and "cuentapropistas," self-employed entrepreneurs who defy government restrictions to pursue their dreams.
