Colm ToibinAn exemplary travel book, the result of 40 years wandering in provincial Spain...In Spain, the Romanesque churches stand in out-of-the-way places, they are graceful and understated...If novelists were churches, Nooteboom would be Romanesque. Nooteboom ranks with Gerald Brenan, Ian Gibson, and Robert Hughes as outsiders who have written great books about Spain this century. His book has the odd capacity to make you change your life, or at least consider doing so. These journeys, this way of traveling-slow, meditative, solitary, full of knowledge-this is how we all should travel.
