Read full description of the books Ghosts of Spain: Travels Through Spain and Its Silent Past:â€œPart modern social history, part travelogue, Ghosts of Spain is held together by elegant first-person proseâ€¦an invaluable bookâ€¦[that] has become something of a bible for those of us extranjeros who have chosen to live in Spain. A country finally facing its past could scarcely hope for a better, or more enamored, chronicler of its present.â€â€”Sarah Wildman, New York Times Book Review The appearance, more than sixty years after the Spanish Civil War ended, of mass graves containing victims of Francisco Francoâ€™s death squads finally broke what Spaniards call â€œthe pact of forgettingâ€â€”the unwritten understanding that their recent, painful past was best left unexplored. At this charged moment, Giles Tremlett embarked on a journey around the country and through its history to discover why some of Europeâ€™s most voluble people have kept silent so long. In elegant and passionate prose, Tremlett unveils the tinderbox of disagreements that mark the country today. Ghosts of Spain is a revelatory book about one of Europeâ€™s most exciting countries.
