This volume takes the reader through the history of this enigmatic and vivid city in seven witty and off-beat walks stopping not only at the great palaces and museums, parks, paintings, posetry, novels and patisserie-making convents that make up the vibrant life of this great capital. The text is complemented by old engravings, historic photographs and glorious early maps, as well as a full index and practical information.

Review Text

  • By wordwildwebb on 18 March 2004

    There is - literally - no other book like this; the eccentric design and format guarantee it will stand out on your bookshelf. The contents are really what make it unique, however: it's a collection of erudite and gossipy musings about the history and culture of this maddeningly fascinating city, all organised into a series of walks. The judgements are refreshingly heterodox (Goya's character emerges as black as his later works); there's a store of information which you won't find in any other English language guide; and the suggestions for further reading are, well, wonderfully suggestive. Until they reprint Richard Ford's guide to Spain, this is the one to get.
