CATALONIA IN A NUTSHELL
DONKEYS, DANCING EGGS AND LOGS THAT POOP SWEETS
CLAIRE SMEDLEY / EVA SANTANA BIGAS
Just why are the Catalans so obsessed with poop? And have you seen how carried away they get with pyrotechnics? As Catalans, they probably haven't given these things a second thought. It's not until someone begins to question them that they realize that placing a man pooping next to the baby Jesus in the nativity scene is perhaps not that common, nor is having a donkey as a national symbol. This book's roots lie in the laughs shared between a Scot and a Catalan who one day decided to try and paint a picture of the Catalan people. What are they really like? Where do some of their customs and habits come from? Cat's tongues? Two and a half to five? Programmes about mushrooms on prime time tele? Warning -prepare to be entertained!
