He is the author of the critically acclaimed Duende and Andalus.Review:
"An absorbing book that conveys the raw Spanish experience - its heat, dust, light and shade - with rare and startling actuality. Admirers of his first two books will have their high regard confirmed by this one. Newcomers should start here. They will not be disappointed" * Literary Review * "Written with considerable power and beauty" * The Sunday Times * "The term "romantic traveller", once used indiscriminately by Spaniards to describe any foreigner with a passionate interest in Spain, seems particularly applicable to Jason Webster... you are likely to be seduced by his powers as a storyteller" * Independent * "Squarely in the Almodovarian reality of contemporary Spain... goes straight to the heart" * Tomas Graves * "Webster's surely right to see the legacy of the war in terms of - often turbulent - undercurrents; for him it informs a little-known and largely nasty side of Spain... revelatory and rings true" * The Scotsman *
