Mr B's review

“Iberia” is Julian Sayarer’s account of his impromptu journey across Portugal and Spain, from Lisbon towards Barcelona, undertaken during a pandemic on an old blue bicycle named Miles

Finding himself in Lisbon amidst a pandemic, Julian Sayarer decides simply to ride. Through hazy landscapes and on baked roads, he pedals east. During long hours in the saddle, his thoughts traverse matters big and small – hopping from post-colonial culpability to the supremacy of an orange picked at the roadside. Across 900 miles of sun-drenched olive groves, vast mountainscapes, and dormant towns glimpsed through driving rain, Sayarer’s journey is punctuated by fleeting, beautiful moments of human connection. Iberia is a celebration of a shared humanity and community found in a uniquely fragile time.

The 7th publication from Mr B’s sister publishing house, Fox, Finch & Tepper, “Iberia” marks our first original non-fiction publication and the beginning of our expansion beyond reissuing lost gems.


On a two-wheeled journey across Spain and Portugal, Julian Sayarer returns with his characteristically keen observations on adventure, humanity, and politics. Set against the backdrop of the pandemic, this is a travelogue about the ‘in-between places’, the lives of the people found there, and an old blue bicycle called Miles.
