Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Why don’t you? This simple question took Nellie Bennett to a new life halfway around the world, as recounted in her frothy and fun memoir. A shopgirl at an Australian department store, Bennett is seduced by the charms of Spain as she studies flamenco dancing in Seville. But when she moves to Madrid for more dance classes, alone and broke, she finds life isn’t all orange blossoms and late-night dancing. Bennett is endearingly forthright about her foibles and shortcomings. Her sincere love for the enthusiastic Spanish culture embodied in the expression toma que toma (roughly “take it, take it”) overrides the sometimes clichéd aspects of her storytelling, such as her focus on the liquid dark eyes of the handsome Spanish men. Although she has her flirtations and finds romance, at its core this is a love story about a dance, a country, and an approach to life. Similar to Eat, Pray, Love, but on a less ambitious scale, Only in Spain celebrates the possibilities that arise when, instead of “Why?” one asks, “Why not?” --Bridget Thoreson

Review

"Nellie Bennett's lust for adventure infuses this book with passion and joy.
" - Rita Golden Gelman, author of Tales of a Female Nomad

"A vivid, entertaining memoir... Bennett had me itching to pack my bag and join her." - Ann Vanderhoof, author of An Embarrassment of Mangoes and The Spice Necklace

"A peripatetic Australian's account of how a flamenco dancing hobby led to high adventures in music, food and love in Spain... Lightweight, footloose good fun." - Kirkus
