169 pages1 hour


This 2018 anthology contains writings, in English, about Galicia by writers from all over the world, including Galicia itself.
Galicia is a fascinating part of Green Spain, the northern part of the Iberian Peninsula, and sits in the north western most part, surrounded on two sides by the sea, and on a third by Portugal.
Unlike the previous anthologies this one contains stories about how the magic of Galicia drew people into its heart as well as several nuts and bolts pieces about foreigners following the dream of buying houses, renovating them and living in Galicia. Also included are stories of romance and stories and articles about Galicia’s history, its legends, its people, and its landscape. Yet again we hav a piece about the magic of the huerta or vegetable garden, something that occupies an almost mystical place in Galician life and culture.
The Poetry section in the competition this book is based on, has grown each year and again poetry features strongly in this years anthology. Galicia is one of the Celtic lands and poetry occupies a significant place in its culture.
We hope you enjoy this brief look at an ancient land, one full of generous people and natural splendours, and agree that there is indeed a lot of good in a life in Galicia.
The Good Life in Galicia 2018 is available in paperback and e-book. Also available in e-book and paperback are the first volume from 2016, The Good Life in Galicia, and the second volume, The Good Life in Galicia 2017.
