Spain Writers: Paul Read
Paul was born without an idea in his head and intends to keep it that way. If 10 yrs in
Spain has taught him anything, its that fixed positions and straight lines just don΄t work.
Better to work in circles, repeat yourself often and to take your coffee milky. Forced to
spend a year at Seville University as part of a degree course in Spanish contemporary history,
he discovered that the sky was actually much higher than his London background had led him to
believe.On a quest to discover other geographical and cultural differences he moved to Toledo
for 2 yrs and co-wrote a series of budget guide books on the neglected side of the city. Like
many before him, he was eventually expelled for rent arrears and street agitation and so
sought refuge, like Brenan, South of Granada. Here he trades words and work skills whilst
restoring an abandoned olive farm.
