"Here are more than half-a-hundred images to be read as one, and which Cristóbal Hara, with wise modesty, calls 'a couple of things about Spain', one has to assume that, under cover of the ironic title, the author is, sensibly, not claiming to present a total vision of Spain. This claim is obviously directed at those of us who - wary from nearly a century of rhetorical, agonizing and redeeming literature on the essence of the 'mother country' and its problems - shy away, as we would from metaphysics, from the name 'Spain' when it appears in headlines. So the title that Cristóbal Hara has given to his work turns out, besides being ironic, modest and wise, to be also exceedingly precise, because having to do with Spain, only the person who says 'a couple of things' about her has a chance of being truthful."
