Cloth Spine Over Boards. London: The Bodley Head. First UK Edition. Green cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. This is a challenging, dynamic and controversial book. It describes two journeys by Richard Wright to Spain in which he discovers a country unknown both to the ordinary and to the more sophisticated traveller.
He is interested above all in people, and he records his conversations with members of every social class-aristocrats, intellectuals, priests, flamenco dancers, clerks, bull-fighters, pimps, prostitutes, old and young-who respond to his sympathy by telling him how they really think and feel and live.
The central paradox of Spain, he believes, is religious. In this ancient Catholic country, worship, customs and festivals, relics, even the bull-ring itself, reflect, he asserts, a faith that is not true Catholicism but a marriage of the Catholic with the primitive and primeval. This interpretation of the Spanish scene and Mr. Wright's outspokenness will certainly arouse violent argument.
Yet no one can fail to be stirred and interested by so passionate and human a book. I like the bluntness and emotionalism, I like, above all, his humanity, dumbstruck and innocent, before the miserable cynicism of Spanish life. Octavo, hardcover, previous owner's name on endpaper and pages age-toned else VG in fair blue and white pictorial dj.
