"Lewis really goes deep, like a sharp, polished knife."Book Description:
After the war Norman Lewis returned to Spain and settled in the remote fishing village of Farol, on what is now the Costa Brava. Voices of the Old Sea describes his three successive summers in the almost medival community where life revolved around seasonal sardine catches, the Alcalde's bar and satisfying feuds with neighbouring villages. With affection and sorrow Lewis records the villagers' struggle to sustain their precarious existence and to defend it against the enticements of an inexorable tourist development. 'I will wager that Voices of the Old Sea will be a classic in the literature about Spain' Mail on Sunday 'A marvellous, iridescent epitaph' The Times 'Here once again we see what a magical storyteller Mr Lewis can be' Daily Telegraph
