Fidel Castro unveils 1,000-page memoir

Fidel Castro has released a previously unannounced two-volume memoir of his life, Cuban state-run media reported Saturday.

In a six-hour presentation Friday, the leader of the Cuban Revolution and former president was jovial as he spoke about the 1,000-page work, the Granma newspaper reported.

Castro, 85, spoke together with a panel of cultural and literary officials at the unveiling of the books.

"They are going to talk to you about two books that you had no idea about," Castro said, according to Granma.

The two volumes, titled "Fidel Castro Ruz: Guerrilla of Time," is based on conversations with the writer and journalist Katiuska Blanco.

    I used to give people a hard time for posting "who cares" on various stories, but on this one I admit I have finally found my ultimate WHO CARES moment. Thank you Fidel. I didn't think it was possible.
