    Daily Telegraph
  • "Webster's style is engaging and elegiac"

  • "Webster is a clever, hugely readable interpreter of Spain. He is also irrepressible: his work is a master class in involvement...this deserves to be - and undoubtedly will be - one of the most successful books about Spain this year"

    Julian Evans, Independent
  • "Full of romanticism, comedy mishaps and colourful characters, it makes for a deeply personal and highly personable account of one life-changing year"
