Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well written account of the author's time in Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia which demonstrates a unique sensitivity to issues of national identity. Worthwhile reading for outsiders trying to make sense of the wonderful part of Europe that is Catalunya-the land of Casals, Miró, Dalí- and understand their artistic and cultural milieu.

Format: Paperback
This is a delightful book and a joy to read. It's wonderful mix of many aspects of Barcelona (e.g., history, architecture, food, lifestyle) and some nearby places. Makes me want to return to Barcelona very soon. I'll understand it better next time thanks to this book.
