Written and edited by David Holzer who lives in Mallorca, has been coming to Deia for around twenty years and has strong ties to the village.
A freelance writer for many years, David is the author of a number of books and magazine articles. He is fascinated by the remarkably rich cultural history of Deia, from Robert Graves to the present day, and is currently researching and writing a book on the subject.
