Two themes are combined in this book. One is a personal tale chronicling the author's discovery of Spain, of the pull it held over him and the reasons why he returned time and again, often to act out the most potent and vivid moments of his life. It also tells of Spain's journey as it emerged from the shroud of Francoism to its position now as perhaps the most dynamic and charismatic country in Europe.
