You know about this book, everyone knows about this book. This is the quintessential- 'teacher wants you to read in in school kind of book, which is actually why I picked it as well, because uh- I want- I want you to be part of this.

It’s always the beautiful simplicity of this story that transports me. Not a word is wasted. For such a short novel, it kind of approaches perfection in storytelling for me. Hemingway apparently said of the novel that it was the “best I can write ever for all of my life.”

One of my favorites authors is Ernest Hemingway and he is not Spanish but he was in love with the Spanish culture. Many things I learn from your country are through his eyes. The Old Man and the Sea, The Garden of Eden or A Farewell to Arms are inspired in Spain.
