9780812969801: Iberia

Spain is an immemorial land like no other, one that James A. Michener, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author and celebrated citizen of the world, came to love as his own. Iberia is Michener’s enduring nonfiction tribute to his cherished second home. In the fresh and vivid prose that is his trademark, he not only reveals the celebrated history of bullfighters and warrior kings, painters and processions, cathedrals and olive orchards, he also shares the intimate, often hidden country he came to know, where the congeniality of living souls is thrust against the dark weight of history. Wild, contradictory, passionately beautiful, this is Spain as experienced by a master writer.

“Kaleidoscopic . . . This book will make you fall in love with Spain.”The Houston Post

From the Inside Flap :

From the glories of the Prado to the danger and dazzle of the bullfights, master storyteller James A. Michener magnificently captures the stunning kaleidoscope that is Spain.

Here is a rich and enduring tribute to a fascinating country, an immemorial place that has become Michener's second home. In the fresh and vivid prose that is his trademark, Michener not only reveals the celebrated Spain of warrior kings, painters and cathedrals, he also shares the intimate, often hidden Spain he has come to know: where the fishermen of the salted shores, the toiling peasants of the inland fields and the congeniality and passion of all of Spain's living souls conspire with the dark weight of history to create this mysterious, contradictory and wildly beautiful land.

Look for other titles by James A. Michener available from Random House AudioBooks including Alaska, Texas, and Caribbean.

Philip Bosco's extensive credits include appearances in the films Trading Places, Three Men and a Baby, Suspect, Working Girl, and The Silence of the Lambs.

About the Author :

James A. Michener was one of the world’s most popular writers, the author of more than forty books of fiction and nonfiction, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Tales of the South Pacific, the bestselling novels The Source, Hawaii, Alaska, Chesapeake, Centennial, Texas, Caribbean, and Caravans, and the memoir The World Is My Home. Michener served on the advisory council to NASA and the International Broadcast Board, which oversees the Voice of America. Among dozens of awards and honors, he received America’s highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 1977, and an award from the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities in 1983 for his commitment to art in America. Michener died in 1997 at the age of ninety.
