Críticas:

It is everything that made the first book so hugely successful - endearing, heartwarming, self-deprecating, sometimes surreal. (William Leith Evening Standard)

He's pulled it off: this is as funny and charming as the first book. (Alasdair Palmer Sunday Telegraph)

A GIANT FOR 2002. The chapters I saw were wonderful. (Sarah Broadhurst The Bookseller)

Chris Stewart's story cannot be told too often. ( The Times)

An unexpected gem of a book, written with a mix of insight and self-deprecation that echoes Bill Bryson at his funniest. ( Dundee Evening Telegraph & Post)

Stewart never patronises, he just observes . . . funny, generous and warm . (Sue Arnold Guardian)

A brilliant follow-up. ( The Bookseller)

Easily the best and funniest of all those otherwise wearisome expatriate diaries. ( Independent on Sunday)

All quite delightful and slips down as easily as a small bottle of Spanish Beer. (Giles Foden Conde Naste Traveller)

Reseña del editor:

Chris Stewart turns another leaf on his life in southern Spain in this evocative and very funny Sort Of sequel to his best-selling biography, Driving Over Lemons. It is fact part sequel - further (mis)adventures of Chris and his family in their remote Andalusian farm - and part prequel, looking back on Chris' previous lives, drumming with the teenage Genesis and in a circus, shearing sheep in midwinter Sweden and heading off to Spain to learn flamenco guitar.

It is fact part sequel - further (mis)adventures of Chris and his family in their remote Andalusian farm - and part prequel, looking back on Chris' previous lives, drumming with the teenage Genesis and in a circus, shearing sheep in midwinter Sweden and heading off to Spain to learn flamenco guitar.Chris Stewart’s DRIVING OVER LEMONS told the story of his move to a remote mountain farm in Las Alpujarras – an oddball region of Spain, south of Granada. Funny, insightful and real, the book became an international bestseller. A PARROT IN A PEPPER TREE, the sequel to Lemons, follows the lives of Chris, Ana and their daughter, Chloë, as they get to grips with a misanthropic parrot who joins their home, Spanish school life, neighbours in love, their amazement at Chris appearing on the bestseller lists . . and their shock at discovering that their beloved valley is once more under threat of a dam. A Parrot in the Pepper Tree also looks back on Chris Stewart’s former life – the hard times shearing in midwinter Sweden (and driving across the frozen sea to reach island farms); his first taste of Spain, learning flamenco guitar as a 20-year old; and his illustrious music career, drumming for his schl band Genesis (sacked at 17, he never quite became Phil Collins), and then for a circus.
