It takes moxie to empty out your savings account, leave a comfortable life in town, and buy a run-down farm in a remote village in another country. Travel writer Chris Stewart moved his wife and his life from England to Andalucía, Spain. The author provides a funny, entertaining, and understated reading of his own work, complete with flawless Andalucían dialect. Stewart finds humor in most aspects of the move, including surprising his wife with her new home, sans running water or electricity. He expresses this humor both in prose and voice--you can almost hear him chuckling under his breath. You can also hear his few moments of discouragement and frustration. All of these come together in a mix as spicy and unusual as the cuisine of a mountain village. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
