The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society | [Chris Stewart]

The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society

The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society finds Chris Stewart and his family still living on their farm, El Varo -- but life there never stands still. You will find yourself laughing out loud as Chris is instructed by his daughter on the way to treat dung beetles, bluffs his way as an art history guide to millionaire Bostonians, collects seeds in North Africa, and joins an Almond Blossom Appreciation Society. And you'll cringe as he tries his hand at office work in Granada.

Publisher's Summary

The good life abroad just keeps getting better as Chris Stewart, one-time Genesis drummer turned sheepshearer and best-selling writer, returns with a new book on his life in the decidedly oddball region of Las Alpujarras, south of Granada.

The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society finds Chris and his family still living on their farm, El Varo -- but life there never stands still. You will find yourself laughing out loud as Chris is instructed by his daughter on the way to treat dung beetles, bluffs his way as an art history guide to millionaire Bostonians, collects seeds in North Africa, and joins an Almond Blossom Appreciation Society. And you'll cringe as he tries his hand at office work in an immigrants' advice centre in Granada.

In this sequel to Driving over Lemons and A Parrot in a Pepper Tree, Chris Stewart's optimism and zest for life is as infectious as ever.

What the Critics Say

"Mightily entertaining....Stewart makes an excellent reader of his accounts of Spain and life at his farm, El Varo, [with] the reading accentuating the self-deprecatory humour, adding considerably to the listener's pleasure. A welcome longer-length recording -- five hours -- and every minute enjoyed." (Publishing News)
