Book Description'I was almsot born Happy.' So begins "The Spanish Bow" and the remarkable history of Feliu Delargo, who just misses being 'Feliz' by a misunderstanding at his birth, which he barely survives.The accidental bequest of a cello bow from his dead father sets Feliu on the course of becoming a musician, unlikely given his beginnings in a dusty village in Catalonia. When he is compelled to feel to anarchist Barcelona, his education in mucis, life, and politics begins. But it isn't until he arrives at the court of the embattles monarchy in Madrid that passion enters the composition. As Feliu embarks on affairs, friendships, and rivalries, the tensions propelling Spain and the larger world toward catastrophe crescendo and critical choices must be made."The Spanish Bow" is a haunting fugue of music, politics, and passion set against half a century of Spanish history, form the tail end of the nineteenth century up through the Spanish Civil War and World War II.
