Synopsis: ‘Edinburgh Forever' recounts the trials and tribulations of a Spanish family's decision to leave their home town, Vitoria (Basque country), in exchange for a year living in Edinburgh. Miguel, his wife Veronica and their two children, Javier and Loreto, depart northern Spain and immerse themselves fully in Scottish life. Miguel has fond memories from his study days in his youth but it proves hardest for him to adjust. They battle language difficulties, shopping and finding schools for the children - some of it they take in their stride and other things prove more problematic. The ‘jamon' parcels from friends often arrive at a time when a soothing taste of home is desperately needed. The book will have you laughing and wringing your hands in equal measure. And how long will they stay?
About the Author: Miguel Sánchez Medrano is a journalist and publicist. Originally from Saragossa, he has been resident in Vitoria - a city which he loves in every respect - for the last 33 years. He developed his professional career in this city and in Bilbao, working for the Basque newspaper El Correo. He also admits to being in love with Edinburgh, where he and his family recently spent two years - a time which forms the subject of this book. He also lived there 27 years ago, when he was 35 and a happy bachelor. Miguel has acknowledged that he loves a good debate and hopes this book will be a good pretext to practise.
