Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A bestseller in England, this warm, funny account of a British family's attempt to make a home in southern Spain follows the first drummer for the rock band Genesis as he heads for Andalucia with his wife and kids.


Review:

"As funny as DRIVING OVER LEMONS is, it is the underlying richness and evocation of humanity that makes this book so memorable. Chris Stewart may not have set the standard in travel writing, but he has certainly raised it."

Lawrence Goldstone, Chicago Tribune, 3/27/00

Review:

"[A]lthough he writes with passion and conviction about his new life, Stewart never gives a full and satisfying answer to the reader's burning question: Why did he want to leave everything behind for this kind of struggle?"

Chris Jones, Book, May/June 2000

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Vintage Departures ed. 212 x 124 mm. Brand New Book. No sooner had Chris Stewart set eyes on El Valero than he handed over a check. Now all he had to do was explain to Ana, his wife that they were the proud owners of an isolated sheep farm in the Alpujarra Mountains in Southern Spain. That was the easy part. Lush with olive, lemon, and almond groves, the farm lacks a few essentials--running water, electricity, an access road. And then there s the problem of rapacious Pedro Romero, the previous owner who refuses to leave. A perpetual optimist, whose skill as a sheepshearer provides an ideal entree into his new community, Stewart also possesses an unflappable spirit that, we soon learn, nothing can diminish. Wholly enchanted by the rugged terrain of the hillside and the people they meet along the way--among them farmers, including the ever-resourceful Domingo, other expatriates and artists--Chris and Ana Stewart build an enviable life, complete with a child and dogs, in a country far from home.
