"A personal report on Spain today, its ancient romance, beauty and poverty, its unique religion, its politics and people.a book that is alive with the blood, passion and tragedy of a great country." - from the front of the dj. "The Spain of Richard Wright is not the Spain known to the ordinary tourist or even to the sophisticted Hispanophile. He has written of a country which is not only beautiful and romantic, but tragic and paradoxical. He has examined aspects of Spanish life which have been largely left unreported by others. The book deals directly with the Spanish people of all classes - aristocrats, intellectuals, gypsies, priests, flamenco dancers, Protestants, clerks, bullfighters, pimps, prostitutes, old and young. Without sentimentality, yet with deep compassion, Mr. Wright has reported what these people think and feel today. The central paradox of Spain, he demonstrates, is religious. In this ancient and almost exclusively Catholic country, worship, customs, festivals, processions, miracles, relics, even the bull ring itself, he asserts, reflect a faith that is not Catholicism, that is primitive and primeval. . This, the first book of its kind on Spain since WWII, is a masterpiece of vigorous journalism. It will stir up controversy - but no one will deny the passionate sincerity of the author, or his dramatic way of telling the story." - from the dj flap. N° de réf. du libraire 2293
