Was the author also featured in a Rick Stein episode on his Mediterranean series ?
As Maidstoned says, it was Spain and Iím sure the author (Chris Stewart?) did feature in one of Rick Steinís jaunts. Heís also written 3 or 4 other books in similar vein.

Have a go at this as well, hilarious in parts...especially his chapter on taking part in a "caŮada".

After such an intense book I have gone chic lit and am reading Normal People by Sally Rooney.

Reading Cujo, which is one of the early King books I havent read, for some reason. Then I have downloaded the Mortdecai trilogy on recommendation from Selhurst and CK. If they're crap...they will get hurt.

The Plotters - Kim Um Su. Quirky Murakami / Tarantino crossover style Korean thriller. Read more like a film than a book but recommended if you want something a bit different.

The Gallows Pole - Benjamin Myers. Account of 18th century Yorkshire coiners. Best book I've read this year.

I have added this to my very long to read list. It sounds fascinating, exactly the sort of thing I love. Thanks.

I read Pig Iron by him a few years back. It would make a good Shane Meadows film.

You wont be disappointed, particularly if you're interested in the historical aspects.

Thanks, will check that one out as well. Loved the bleak folk style so hopefully that's the same sort of feel.
