Summary

"Part modern social history, part travelogue,Ghosts of Spainis held together by elegant first-person prose...an invaluable book...[that] has become something of a bible for those of usextranjeroswho have chosen to live in Spain. A country finally facing its past could scarcely hope for a better, or more enamored, chronicler of its present."Sarah Wildman,New York Times Book Review The appearance, more than sixty years after the Spanish Civil War ended, of mass graves containing victims of Francisco Franco's death squads finally broke what Spaniards call "the pact of forgetting"the unwritten understanding that their recent, painful past was best left unexplored. At this charged moment, Giles Tremlett embarked on a journey around the country and through its history to discover why some of Europe's most voluble people have kept silent so long. In elegant and passionate prose, Tremlett unveils the tinderbox of disagreements that mark the country today.Ghosts of Spainis a revelatory book about one of Europe's most exciting countries.
