From Barcelona, Stories Behind the City

By Jeremy Holland

General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Dubbed, 'The Great Enchantress', by art critic Robert Hughes, Barcelona was seducing visitors long before the city's rise to a tourist hotspot following the Olympic Games in 1992. Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and George Orwell all once called the Catalan capital 'home', while countless others have been charmed by the city's character and splendour. From Barcelona is a collection of twelve short stories inspired by this cryptic Mediterranean metropolis, where haunted flats overlook leafy squares and feline temptresses lurk in smoky bars. Experience Antoni Gaudí's frustrations as he sought to revolutionise architecture, and discover the legend behind the man who squats with his belt around his ankles hidden in nativity scenes. These are just a few of the characters and tales you can expect, all set in a literary world of churches, dragons and roses.
