Roads To Santiago



'One of the great books about Spain' - Tristan Garel-Jones, Observer

A many-tangented pilgrimage through ten centuries of Spain's history, its politics, its art, literature and architecture, its climate and its people, in which Nooteboom unlocks doors to an undiscovered Spain and reveals his obsession for a country he has come to know intimately over the course of forty years.

Praise for Roads To Santiago

One of the great books about Spain

Tristan Garel-Jones, Observer

His prose is as sturdy as a good Rioja, and equally delicious

Sara Wheeler

With this immensely attractive book, Cees Nooteboom joins a select band of writer... who have the rare ability to evoke the soul of a nation. No one with a feeling for Spain should fail to read this book

Daily Telegraph

Invites the reader to share the excitement, experiences, even food, that the author has encountered while weaving his way through [Spain] slowly and deliciously... Mr. Nooteboom lingers in out-of-the-way places most tourists miss

New York Times Book Review

Nooteboom plunges fervently into the fabric of Spain itself

San Francisco Chronicle

The erudition, ambition and resonance are reminiscent of Claudio Magris' magisterial Danube. But the voice - and, as he has rendered it, the territory - is Nooteboom's own
