Description
This book celebrates one of Europe's greatest cities, a cosmopolitan hub of vibrant architecture, art, culture, and nightlife that, since the region's transition from dictatorship to democracy in the 1970s, Colm Tóibín has often called home. The author of such travel and essay collections as The Sign of the Cross and Love in a Dark Time, as well as novels like The Master and The Blackwater Lightship (both shortlisted for the Booker Prize), Tóibín tells the story of Barcelona from its founding. He describes the city's great expansion in the 19th century, the history of Catalan nationalism, the Spanish Civil War, and the Franco years, and also spotlights such creative Catalans as Gaudí, Miró, Picasso, Casals, and Dalí.

"Having lived in Barcelona off and on since the 70s, Tóibín knows all the fascinations of its sensuous Mediterranean history and lifestyle and 'the most precious jewels in the city's treasury of bars.'... Tóibín is the perfect guide."—Chicago Tribune
