I discovered him online whilst searching for books on Spain - I took the plunge and started with his 'Guerra' - Living in the shadows of the Spanish Civil War. I thoroughly enjoyed it (review here)
So I moved onto his 'Duende' What is duende - well that is rather the point of his book as he gets caught up in the world of flamenco and much more besides. My review:
Being an Expat myself it is naturally interesting to see how others fare in this country - and Webster was determined to scratch his itch and find 'Duende' it nearly killed him. His story gently unfolds then the pace hots up and to be honest I could not put it down. He has an easy style to read but still conveys a lot enabling the reader to feel, smell and sense the different environments he finds himself in. Whilst I do not claim to have had all the same experiences I do relate to many of his points and thoroughly enjoyed it. But please don't think this is the typical Expat life! But a welcome change from much of the drivel Expat 'literature' out there. Good for JW.
Next up 'Andalus'....
