When an author is as modest and humorous as this, his story cannot be told too often.
Exquisite ... in Driving Over Lemons the anecdote flourishes once more.
About the Author
<p>Chris Stewart shot to fame with <i>Driving Over Lemons</i> (9780956003805) - Sort Of Books' launch title in 1999. Funny, insightful and real, the book told the story of how he bought a peasant farm on the wrong side of the river, with its previous owner still resident. It became an international bestseller and with its sequels - <i>A Parrot in the Pepper Tree</i> and <i>The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society</i> - it has sold more than a million copies in the UK alone.</p><p>Chris prepared for life on his Spanish mountain farm with jobs of doubtful relevance. He was the original drummer in Genesis (he played on the first album), then joined a circus, learnt how to shear sheep, went to China to write the Rough Guide, gained a pilot's license in Los Angeles, and completed a course in French cooking. <i>Three Ways to Capsize a Boat</i> fills in his lost years as a yacht skipper in the Greek islands.</p><p>Despite the extraordinary success of his books, Chris, his wife Ana, and their daughter Chloë, continue to live on their farm, with their numerous dogs, cats, chickens, sheep and misanthropic parrot.</p>

Would recommend it. Planning to read its sequels soon. Also the interview at the end of the book made it that much sweeter time spent away from tv.. Which interestingly is how I came to know about this book.. Through some travel show I can't remember.. (Sorry, it was a good show too.. in that I saw this couple and the river road their house and the author was so delighted to receive a big bunch of tied up garlic. Looking and listening to him I felt at that time I must read his book.. Literally years passed away and still the book remained in some corner of my mind.. Glad I finally read it.
