Ever since Ernest Hemingway popularized the fiesta de San Fermin with the publication of "The Sun Also Rises" in 1926, the world has been enthralled with the concept of running with the bulls. For millions, running with the bulls remains on their bucket list, and for Hemingway fans it is a lifelong dream. For Peter N. Milligan, it is a way of life. Part memoir and part travel guide, "Bulls Before Breakfast" recounts Milligan's many adventures in Pamplona, Spain. In his dozen years of visiting the fiesta de San Fermin, Milligan has run with the bulls over 70 times and accumulated stories both thrilling and terrifying.
"Bulls Before Breakfast" is the definitive guide to Pamplona, its famed fiesta, and the surrounding Kingdom of Navarra. It is also a memoir of two brothers running with the bulls and exploring every corner of the city, the countryside, the mountains, the beaches, and the famed restaurants of the Basque hinterland. The book focuses on local knowledge, and the hidden mysteries of this closed, private culture and community. Milligan has slowly pried open this trove of secrets over the past twelve years, all while refining the art of getting between the horns of a massive, perfect Spanish killing machine, el toro bravo, and running for his life.
