In chronicling Spain's vibrant present Giles Tremlett, Madrid correspondent for The Guardian, disturbs the ghosts of Spain's past. Voices of the Spaniards he meets in his travels speak of the appalling atrocities committed by both sides during the Civil War, long hidden by a "pact of forgetting." While writing incisively about Basque separation, the gypsy roots of flamenco and the Madrid train bombings, Tremlett also includes highly personal accounts of living and raising a family in Madrid. Part modern social history, part travelogue, this is an affectionate and elegantly written book.
