About the Book

'If God continues to help me and one day I become really famous,' said Lorca in 1929, 'half the celebrity will be due to Granada.' Ian Gibson, author of the internationally acclaimed biography Federico Garcia Lorca and presenter of the BBC series 'Fire in the Blood', investigates the associations Granada held for Spain's most celebrated poet. Combining literary with practical information, he describes ten routes which take the visitor from Lorca's birthplace to the site of his execution. Lorca's Granada forms a unique guide, essential reading for any visitor to this marvellous region of Andalusia, or any lover of Spanish literature.
