About this Item

Contents A cautious introduction. Prologue liberation. Goa. 1. All in the family. 2. Heart and home. 3. Boon companions. 4. Boa festas food feni and fun. Epilogue. Alba and simplicio. On a storm swept September afternoon in Goa Frank Simoes finally found what he had been searching for so many years that perfect acre by the sea. And there he began to build his dream house Rockheart. This book began as the story of his labours but eventually became one Goan's discovery of his idyllic native land. It is peopled by a colourful coast of characters ranging from Leopold da Gama Rose who saved himself from a fate worse than death by hiding beneath his mother's skirts to Remo the famous rock musician from Felix Xavier Fernando the confidant of cobras to Barty and Bostao surely the world's only feni fuelled car washing experts. This is more than just a travel book. Thanks to Frank Simoes perceptive eye and abiding love for all things Goan it is a delightful finely etched portrait of a people and their way of life. 318 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 54213
