Monsignor Quixote




'A deliciously funny novel and an affectionate offering to all that is noblest and least changing in the people and life of Spain' The Times

Driven away from his parish by a censorious bishop, Monsignor Quixote sets off across Spain accompanied by a deposed renegade mayor as his own Sancho Panza, and his noble steed Rocinante - a faithful but antiquated SEAT 600. Like Cervantes's classic, this comic, picaresque fable offers enduring insights into our life and times.
