Spain : Between Hopes and Memories, Paperback / softback Book

Spain : Between Hopes and Memories Paperback / softback

Description

"I wanted to search out the memories of Spain's cultural protagonists and in so doing explore the metaphorical and mythical landscapes that the Spaniards themselves had created.

I was also interested in a Spain that contradicted and even parodied romantic images of Spanishness, an ephemeral and anarchic Spain of discos, pollution, unpublished poets, architectural tack, gastronomic passions, historical shams and fantastical bad taste."In this classic and much-loved portrait of Spain, acclaimed author Michael Jacobs travels far off the beaten track and in the footsteps of some of Spain's most iconic literary figures - Miguel de Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Manuel Vazquez Montalban - to some of the country's most undiscovered places.

In so doing, he discovers the very heart of Spain.
