The Search for Puerto del Faglioli
on 12 December 2010
This is a genuinely good book. Honestly. This comes from someone who reads a lot of books, and who sets great store by clear, incisive writing. And from someone who until a recent conjunction of circumstances with which I won't bore you had no interest in motorbikes or the people who ride them. The sequence of events is compelling, the story-telling is entertaining, and the narrative builds to portray a picture of a kind and sensitive Irishman, genuinely fascinated by the scenes he is witnessing. It is a delightful mix of personal anecdote and political and social commentary, which leaves the reader with a clear understanding of the size of Wales relative to virtually everything. And if that's not a reason to buy it, I don't know what is.
