A chronicle of four decades of tumultuous life in the Middle East by the most respected Spanish correspondent in the region. La historia desde mi balcón includes more than seven thousand chronicles for the Barcelona newspaper La Vanguardia about the big warlike and social events in the last years in the Middle East and bordering zones. And actually many of his chronicles were written from his balcony, in the old building Saad in Beirut.
After more than forty years as a correspondent in the region, Tomás Alcoverro is one of the few great reporters still active in the Middle East.
The style; cultured, excellent prose, places Tomás Alcoverro on the same level as the great journalists Robert Fisk and Josep Pla.
