Product description


Tremlett's work will bring many who think we know Spain to confront what we have hesitated to acknowledge even to ourselves. (Matthew Parris)

Tremlett writes with humour, modesty and a great affection for his subject (Miranda France Daily Telegraph 2006-03-19)

a transfixing, elegantly written account of Spain today (Siobhan Murphy Metro 2006-03-22)

Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Spain. (Sarah Williams BBC History Magazine 2006-04-01)

A feast of a book (Irish Times)

'Lively and well-informed ... at once a history, a journalistic inquiry and a travel book.' (Sunday Telegraph)

'An invaluable book ... Ghosts of Spain has become something of a bible for those of us extranjeros who have chosen to live in Spain ... A country finally facing its past could scarcely hope for a better, or more enamored chronicler of its present.' (New York Times Book Review)

'Tremlett skilfully transports the reader back and forth from the medieval atmospher and tragic events of Spain's mid-twentieth century, to its modern and sophisticated present.' (Guardian)

'A brilliant evocation of Spain ... vivid and sensitive.' (Spectator)

'Excellent ... Tremlett writes with humour, modesty and a great affection for his subject.' (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description
