Publisher's Summary

The A to Z of Spanish Culture reflects Spain as seen through the eyes of its author: a Spaniard who grew up in Madrid in the ‘80s and now keeps a close eye on the country from her London home. Presented in an informal style, each chapter addresses an aspect of Spanish culture: its society, traditions, history, gastronomy, art, and language.
From grape-eating on New Year's Eve to the re-enactment of 13th century battles; from the failed military coup in the 80's to the recent fall from grace of the King; from the origin of the fideúa (the pasta-based version of paella) to the origin of the popular tapas, The A to Z of Spanish Culture will get you closer to Spain today.
This audiobook is narrated by the author, Pilar Orti, who also hosts the podcast Spain Uncovered.
Please note: This audiobook does not contain the chapters Vocabulary, From the Horses' Mouths and Blogs, Books and Bites, which can be found in the Kindle and print versions.
