MICHAEL EAUDE writes for the Guardian and Independent. He is the author of Barcelona, the city that re-invented itself (Five Leaves).
"A great contribution to international understanding of Catalonia, with the eye of the person who lives inside but comes from outside." -- Quim Aranda, Avui "Sure-footed in every field, Eaude, [writes] with a beguiling lightness of touch in this tour of Catalan culture and society." -- The Independent "The best attempt so far to give the English-reading public an accurate idea of what this 'stateless culture' consists of." -- Times Literary Supplement
