Alentejo Blue: A Novel by Monica Ali
Alentejo Blue: A Novel

girassol, August 17, 2006

I have read the reviews on this book and disagree with most of them.
Anyone with a true knowledge of the Alentejo region, history and culture would realise that Monica Ali has it exactly right!
I wonder where she gained her insight into this most peculiar part of Europe and the strange mix of characters who have now gathered there?
This IS Alentejo 2006 exactly. Well done Monica!
