Subject: Spain books
Try Iberia by James Michener. I enjoyed the book very much. It really relates to the old Spain but I feel it still shows the soul of the Spanish people. I don't know if the book is available in the US or not but if you can find The Spaniard and and 7 Deadly Sins by Fernando Diaz-Plaja, it's very good. The cover of the book says, A distinguished Spanish author takes a witty,unsparing look at his countrymen. I lived in Spain for 5 years in the 70s when Franco was in power and it was very different than it is now but I still love going back to Spain and would go every year if I could. Carol San Antonio
