Riassunto: Spain is an immemorial land like no other, one that James A. Michener, the Pulitzer Prize?winning author and celebrated citizen of the world, came to love as his own. Iberia is Michener?s enduring nonfiction tribute to his cherished second home. In the fresh and vivid prose that is his trademark, he not only reveals the celebrated history of bullfighters and warrior kings, painters and processions, cathedrals and olive orchards, he also shares the intimate, often hidden country he came to know, where the congeniality of living souls is thrust against the dark weight of history. Wild, contradictory, passionately beautiful, this is Spain as experienced by a master writer.

From the glories of the Prado to the danger and dazzle of the bullfights, master storyteller James A. Michener magnificently captures the stunning kaleidoscope that is Spain.
Here is a rich and enduring tribute to a fascinating country, an immemorial place that has become Michener's second home. In the fresh and vivid prose that is his trademark, Michener not only reveals the celebrated Spain of warrior kings, painters and cathedrals, he also shares the intimate, often hidden Spain he has come to know: where the fishermen of the salted shores, the toiling peasants of the inland fields and the congeniality and passion of all of Spain's living souls conspire with the dark weight of history to create this mysterious, contradictory and wildly beautiful land.
Look for other titles by James A. Michener available from Random House AudioBooks including Alaska, Texas, and Caribbean.
