About this product
- DescriptionAfter World War II, Norman Lewis returned to Spain and settled in the remote fishing village of Farol, on what is w Costa Brava. Voices of the Old Sea describes his three successive summers in that almost medieval community where life revolved around the seasonal sardine catches, Alcade's bar, and satisfying feuds with neighboring villages. It's lucky Lewis was there when he was. Soon after, Spain was discovered by its neighbors in a more prosperous rthern Europe, and the tourist tide that ensued flowed inexorably over the old ways of the town and its inhabitants.
- Author BiographyNorman Lewis was one of the greatest travel writers in the English language. He is the author of thirteen novels and fourteen works of nonfiction, including The Tomb in Seville and Naples '44 (both published by Carroll & Graf).
