The Beautiful Obscure by Luke Stegemann is a powerful work that introduces the reader to an extraordinary array of characters and events. Drawing on his more than 30 years living between Australia and Spain, Luke combines documentary research with art history, political analysis, memoir, travelogue and family anecdote to essay a largely unconsidered cultural history.
'This book spoke to my heart. An outsider's love letter to a people and their way of life... a rich palimpsest of ideas and episodes and tumbling phrases. A country, a culture, a life, all intertwined - who could ask for more?' - Nicolas Rothwell
