Sinopsis: Having pursued a conventional enough path through school and university, Jason Webster was all set to enter the world of academe as a profession. But when his aloof Florentine girlfriend of some years dumped him unceremoniously, he found himself at a crossroads. Abandoning the world of libraries and the future he had always imagined for himself, he headed off instead for Spain in search of duende, the intense emotional state - part ecstasy, part desperation - so intrinsic to flamenco. Duende is an account of his years spent in Spain feeding his obsessive interest in flamenco: he subjects himself to the tyranny of his guitar teacher, practising for hours on end until his fingers bleed; he becomes involved in a passionate affair with Lola, a flamenco dancer (and older woman) married to the gun-toting Vicente, only to flee Alicante in fear of his life; in Madrid, he falls in with Gypsies and meets the imperious Jesus. Joining their dislocated, cocaine-fuelled world, stealing cars by night and sleeping away the days in tawdry rooms, he finds himself spiralling self-destructively downwards. It is only when he arrives in Granada bruised and battered, after two years total immersion in the flamenco lifestyle that he is able to put his obsession into context. In the tradition of Laurie Lee's classic As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning, Duende charts a young man's emotional coming of age and offers real insight into the passionate essence of flamenco.

From the Back Cover: “In this enjoyable Spanish travel memoir...Webster...fluidly interlac[es] his foreigner’s perspective with edgy and often perilous cravings to live of a genuine flamenco guitarist...Webster deserves praise for verbalizing an emotion that most people can only feel or imagine.” –Publishers Weekly

“A journey into the heart of flamenco, it is as vivid and colorful as an Almodovar film; it’ll leave you with a burning desire to head for Spain.” –Time Out (London)

“There are three great non-fiction books about Spain written by Englishmen. One is Laurie Lee's As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning, the other two are by Gerald Brenan: The Spanish Labyrinth and South from Granada. In my view, Jason Webster's Duende:...is very nearly up there in the pantheon....A powerful, dangerous book that will win many prizes.”
Condé Nast Traveller (London)

“Jason Webster has immersed himself deep in a world where few outsiders have succeeded, and he writes about it in an engaging style. I found his descriptions of the Flamenco underworld irresistible, his characterizations deftly drawn, and his ideas and observations on Spain and the Spanish thoughtful and intriguing...I was drawn in straightaway, and although I hesitate to say this ... I couldn't put it down." -Chris Stewart, Author of Driving Over Lemons

“This is a thoroughly good read. An honest attempt to explain a consuming passion, it’s a book where fact is definitely stranger and more convincing than fiction.” -Living Spain

“A compelling account of a culture closed to most guiris (foreigners) and infinitely darker and more dramatic than the colourful tourist spectacles would have them believe.”
The Observer (London)

“His descriptions of troubled modern day Spain are mesmerizing...” Daily Express

“Jason Webster is an exceptional writer, and this is a great book.” Sunday Telegraph

"For a first book, indeed for any book, Webster's writing has great assurance, and there are some superbly constructed moments...Duende is an impressive debut...We will be lucky if we see many such passionate and evocative travel books this year."Sunday Times (London)
