Terry emigrates with his wife to a small community in Spain--where he discovers that his wife's idea of Spain is an English enclave. When he accidentally buys another house, he decamps to it to begin a more authentic expat life. Narrator Joel Froomkin matches the author character for character during hilarious interludes involving house cats that won't be captured for travel, a neighbor who grows hashish in Terry's garden, and villagers who delight in a film crew come to town to shoot a movie. Froomkin's capacity to deliver male and female voices is impressive, as is his fine range of both British and Spanish accents. His pacing, especially when Terry ponders each twist that fate hurls at him, is spot-on. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
