Spain: A Literary Companion
Academy Chicago Publishers, Limited, Jan 1, 2006 - Education - 240 pages
Acclaimed journalist and author Jimmy Burns draws on the observations of an entertaining blend of travelers, writers, soldiers, adventurers, saints and sinners from early times to the present day in Spain. Here is Spain with all its idiosyncrasies, in a compelling narrative that is part travelogue, part anthology, and a wide-ranging portrait of a country and its people. This book will surprise and entertain readers with incisive accounts of battlefield experience, tributes to Spain's three cultures, the joys of Spanish food and wine, the enduring nature of regional identity, the passions of flamenco and bullfighting, and the changes brought to the country by tourism. This is required reading for anyone interested in Spain, its history, culture, politics and people.
