Regular price $13.50 Sale

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. This 1971 Penguin Books Ltd Paperback is in good condition.
