Autumn In Madrid And Other Travel Tales
|Author||Alice M. Sun-Cua|
|Pages||2013, 131pp, 172g|
"What makes us marvel is the way Alice Sun-Cua retrieves for us, not merely adventurous or challenging, but more importantly the quiet, indelible moments when authentic, albeit oftentimes passing, human contact in friendship and compassion is achieved and celebrated...her essays go the extra mile, bringing to us the specific and particular through her stories composed of memorable places and people. She writes of things unrepeatable, even if she were to go back to exactly the same place in another time. This, while she tells of gypsies and flamenco in Andalusia, of old churches, monasteries, forts, palaces and museums--things one would expect to see in a Spanish sojourn--she also brings us on less-travelled paths, 'In search of Cervantes,' or of 'Rizal's Madrid,' and Solsona of Cataluna..." -From the Introduction by Marjorie Evasco
