Book Release: August 11 2016
Tomorrow, my book will be released. To celebrate, I went down to the Plaza Margaret Thatcher in central Madrid, about a 25 minute walk from my flat, to recreate a pose from the book.
The current mayor of Madrid has promised to rename the plaza, after its unveiling a few years ago attracted a fair amount of public disapproval, entirely warranted in my view, given that Maggie has very little connection to Spain at all, and there are far more deserving figures that the city could commemorate. Still, as no renaming has happened yet, and it's such an incongruous thing to have near where I live, I felt I had to get it in the book.
