Reviews

  • "The autobiography-as-travelogue that is also a rite of passage is a form which worked brilliantly for Laurie Lee and Bruce Chatwin - both novelists as well as seekers after the truth-behind-the-truth. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new star of the genre: Jason Webster"

    Daily Mail
  • "His descriptions of troubled modern day Spain are mesmerising, but the greater curiosity is in seeing just how much trouble the confused innocent can create for himself before finding out whom he might really be"

    Daily Express
  • "Wonderfully told, with enough detail about flamenco to educate the curious, and enough drama and characters to fill a novel, Webster may not have turned out to be a guitar maestro, but his journey is recounted like a master"

    Wanderlust
  • "Duende is an intensely personal portrait of a country in the throes of modernisation, whose spirit still defies definition"

    Observer
  • "One of the best books ever written about Spain"
