Una breve historia, llena de detalles curiosos, sobre Galicia, una de las comunidades históricas más desconocidas.
Galicia es, sin duda alguna, l. a. nacionalidad histórica de los angeles que menos suelen ocuparse los medios de comunicación, pese a tratarse de una de las más singulares. Para despejar esas brumas, Miguel-Anxo Murado ofrece al lector un recorrido, mapa en mano, de l. a. historia, los angeles sociología, los angeles política y los angeles geografía gallegas. Se trata de un recorrido moderadamente heterodoxo, y en muchas ocasiones sorprendente, en el que, desechando los tópicos acumulados sobre este país tanto por sus visitantes como por los propios gallegos, se lanza una mirada fresca a fenómenos como l. a. emigración, el caciquismo, el supuesto conservadurismo de su sociedad o incluso los malentendidos acerca de su clima y su paisaje.
¿Son los gallegos realmente celtas? ¿Por qué en Galicia apenas se venden productos contrala cal de las lavadoras? ¿Qué hacía el rey castellano Alfonso X escribiendo su poesía en gallego? Este libro desmitificador, irónico y ameno procura dar respuesta a muchas de las preguntas que el lector pueda haberse planteado alguna vez sobre Galicia y, sobre todo, a aquellas que ni siquiera se había planteado hasta ahora.
«Otra proposal de Galicia, uno de los libros más hermosos que he leído últimamente.»
Jaime Barreiro Gil, El Correo Gallego
«Un éxito. Un libro desmitificador y ameno.»
