From Castanets to Conscription Summary


It's 1957 and Peter Mardle receives two letters on the same day - one giving details of his call-up for National Service, and the other from his cousin in Spain inviting him to stay with her and her GI husband. What would you do? Peter decides to take his last chance of adventure before two years of serving Queen and country. In his beautifully written and atmospheric memoirs, Peter leaves sleepy 1950s Luton and embarks on the journey of a lifetime; a journey that brings him into contact with Franco-era Spain, American culture, and a cast of interesting and intriguing characters. It is an adventure that helps Peter to understand himself, the world, and his place in it a little better. It is an adventure that will change his life forever. But will he return to Britain to do his National Service? What would his hero, Humphrey Bogart, do in a situation like this?
