Book looks never read. Dust has minor freying to corners. Most people think of the Spaniard as a romantic, flamboyant figure steeped in legend, shouting "Ole!" as the matador faces his moment of truth. However true, this picture has about as much reality as a travel poster. What is today's Spaniard really like - and who understands his astonishing character and temperament. Fernando Diaz-Plaja does, and he has given us a witty, unsparing, eminently quotable portrait of his countrymen.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 223 pages; Using the Seven Deadly Sins as touchstones, the author takes a remarkably candid look as each of these sins as practiced with barely concealed enthusiasm by his Spanish countrymen.
