Jason Webster was born near San Francisco in 1970 and brought up in England and Germany. After spells in Italy and Egypt, he moved to Spain. Duende! A Journey in Search of Flamenco (2003) was described as 'a great book' (Guardian), and 'one of the best books ever written on Spain' (Literary Review). Andalus: Unlocking the Secrets of Moorish Spain (2005) also got rave reviews - 'Essential reading' (Daily Mail), 'Fast paced and exciting' (Independent) - while Guerra: Living in the Shadows of the Spanish Civil War (2006) was called 'Moving and succinct... generous and humane' (Sunday Telegraph) and 'Written with considerable power and beauty' ( Sunday Times). Jason has appeared in several TV documentaries on Spain, and writes for The Observer, Sunday Times, Guardian and New Statesman. His wife, Salud, is an actress and flamenco dancer from Valencia: their wedding is the climax of the current book's narrative.Review:
"Webster has the endearing writer's knack of making us laugh and weep along with him...written in the sympathetic tradition of Chris Stewart's best-selling Driving Over Lemons, but is even better" * Sunday Telegraph * "Discursive and appealingly conversational...an inspiring account" * Daily Telegraph * "Webster's style is engaging and elegiac" * Independent on Sunday * "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" * Sunday Telegraph *
