The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society by Chris Stewart
A decade on from Driving Over Lemons and Chris, Ana and Chloë are still living on their Andalucian farm, El Valero. Not that life there ever stands still. You'll laugh out loud as Chris is instructed by his daughter on Spanish teenage life, bluffs his way as an art history guide to millionaire Bostonians, and is 'rescued' off a snowy peak by the Guardia Civil. You'll cringe as he tries his hand at office work in a Granada advice centre. And you'll never look on olive oil in quite the same way again.
This is travel writing at it's most enjoyable, as Chris Stweart's optimism and zest for life remain as charming and infectious as ever.
