About the book
Paul Richardson's mission - 'to sieve out the ancient, perverse and eccentric from the new, nice and normal' - took him from coastal plain to mountainous peak. It also took him, often, by surprise. From ritual pig killings to wood-chopping competitions, from an alchemist who eats stone, to pilgrimages in the name of obscure Virgins, his journey into deep Spain is captivating, often hilarious, sometimes surprising - and always highly illuminating. 'Richardson writes vividly about some of the wilder characters he meets ...read OUR LADY OF THE SEWERS if you want a glimpse of the surviving truth behind tour-operator cliches, and for a view of Spain that is becoming ever harder to find' SUNDAY TIMES 'Puckish, witty, casually erudite . delivers acute and sharply observed portraits of both people and places' TLS

LITERARY REVIEW 'Puckish, witty, casually erudite ... delivers acute and sharply observed portraits of both people and places' TLS
