Acerca de

Reseña del editor:

Peter Mayle's original memoir, A Year in the Provence, created a whole generation of non-fiction tales about English couples heading off to the Mediterranean to renew their zest for life. Marsh's absurd literary comedy turns that tradition on its head, by presenting readers with the ridiculous yet heroic figure of Jesus Sanchez Ventura, the Andalusian peasant whose wife Begona tires of the heat, the lemons and the tranquility of Spain, and who persuades the family to relocate to Belfast.

''a wonderfully funny first novel..., a riotous romp, part Flann O'Brien, part Allison Pearson and wholly enjoyable'' (Sunday Telegraph)

''In the figure of Jesus Sanchez Ventura, Marsh has created a comic character - palavering, rambling, ambitious, doomed - who is reminiscent of some of the great comic characters like Ignatius J Reilly in A Confederacy of Dunces'' (Observer)

''a riotous romp of inversion and mutual incomprehension... It's a comic novel for our time, dark and delightful in equal measures'' (Sunday Business Post)
