Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Andalucia

Chris Stewart, the first drummer for the rock group Genesis, left the band and launched a career that included being an eternal optimist and itinerant sheep shearer. If he'd become a rock star, he might never have moved with his wife, Ana, to a mountain farm in Las Alpujarras, an oddball region in the south of Spain.

Misadventures gleefully unfold as Chris discovers that the owner has no intention of leaving and meets their neighbours, an engaging mix of peasant farmers and shepherds, New Age travellers and ex-pats. Their daughter Chloe is born, linking them irrevocably to their new life.

The hero of the piece, however, is the farm itself - a patch of mountain studded with olive, almond and lemon groves, sited on the wrong side of a river, with no access road, water supply or electricity. Could life offer much better than that?
