A Rose for Winter : Travels in Andalusia, Paperback

A Rose for Winter : Travels in Andalusia Paperback



Andalusia is a passion - and fifteen years after his last visit Laurie Lee returned.

He found a country broken by the Civil War, but the totems of indestructible Spain survive: the Christ in agony, the thrilling flamenco cry-the pride in poverty, the gypsy intensity in vivid whitewashed slums, the cult of the bullfight, the exultation in death, the humour of hopelessness-the paradoxes deep in the fiery bones of Spain.

Rich with kaleidoscopic images, A Rose for Winter is as sensual and evocative as the sun-scorched landscape of Andalusia itself.
