Book Description:
The extraordinary diversity of Spain is uniquely captured by the dazzling array of writers brought together in this collection of the best travel writing on Spain from the New York Times. 'I am in a remote monastery in Castile where they say the Cid died; I am at a bullfight in the Sierra Morena...; I am listening very late or is it very early? to a flamenco in an open air theater, an ancient corral, in Triana.' So writes the eminent historian Hugh Thomas in his introduction to this gathering of authors, reporters, critics, and scholars who create in this volume a group portrait of Spain in all its remarkable diversity. They include writers Anthony Burgess, Barbara Kingsolver , V. S. Pritchett, and Frederic Raphael; and Times reporters and critics Alan Riding, Frank Prial (wine), and Herbert Muschamp (architecture). The perfect gift for every lover of Spain, and anyone contemplating a vacation there, this volume offers highly personal, intimate views of sophisticated travelers experiences of every corner of the country, as well as a series of recent articles that highlight Spanish food, wines, and cultural developments. A concluding chapter offers advice on what to see, where to eat, and where to stay. No other book brings the diversity and richness of experiencing Spain to life with such authority and verve. Writers include Angel Luis Page Alvaro, Katherine Lee Bates, Olivier Bernier, Rachel Billington, Malcolm Bradbury, Anthony Burgess, Penelope Casas, Joan Gould, Benjamin Jones, Barbara Kingsolver, James Markham, Deborah Mason, Michael Mewshaw, Herbert Muschamp, Frank J. Prial, V. S. Pritchett, Frederic Raphael, Alan Riding, Hugh Thomas, Angel de las Heras Sampayo, Edward Schumacher, and Leslie Stainton.
