Descripción del producto

A memoir from the author of "No Roads Lead to Rome" and "Aqueduct to Nowhere."



A wise person observed that visiting a new place for a day makes you an expert but the longer you stay, the less you seem to know. As you integrate into new surroundings, the exotic eventually becomes familiar and what was once quirky becomes the new normal, though you may never quite fit in.



From 2000 to 2005, I lived with my family in Sant Cugat, a Catalan village on the outskirts of Barcelona, Spain. These were interesting and formative years to live, work, and learn abroad.



On a global scale, the hope of the new millennium and the promise of peace didn't last. The new century barely arrived before the world was convulsed with terror that soon turned to war. According to the daily headlines, the planet had become dangerous place.



As we went about our daily lives, we found people were drawing closer, not pulling apart. Traveling extensively through Europe and North Africa, we never felt unsafe or unwelcome.



In putting together this brief collection, I chose to leave world's upheavals and politics aside in order focus on a few odd milestones, minor upsets, and gentle bumps along the road one travels from tourist to resident.



Most of these articles were written and published while avoiding work on my novel, "No Roads Lead to Rome." The first novel and sequel, "Aqueduct to Nowhere," take place in Spain in 123 A.D., a time not unlike the present.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I want to read more from this author 28 de diciembre de 2010

Whether you have lived overseas or just travelled, you will laugh out loud at the cultural confusion faced by an expatriate American living near Barcelona, Spain. Reminiscent of the style of Bill Bryson, these are carefully crafted articles that cover common situations many foreigners struggle with, including local bureaucracy, driving styles and customer service (or lack of it). The only thing wrong with this ebook is that there's just not enough of it!

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas fun to read but really short and serious lack of backing substance 6 de junio de 2011

This short serie of a dozen bloglike articles sure was a delight to read.
the autor has humor and express himself in a very easy and untertaining way.

Yet the "book" is really short and the stories completely lack backup info, those precious little gems that can upgrade a first person personal testimony into serious usefull knowledge and wisdom.

As it is, as a long term expat in Barcelona too, most of the stories felt exaggerated and somehow pointless except for the untertainment.
I felt the author could have digged deeper than its first "american" impressions, could have been more a scout and less a tourist for us all.

Anyway, given the very few books writen by medium to long term expats, i believe one should read every one out there.
If you are in a quest for a better understanding on Spain, its regions, its culture and its behaviors, you might love "the new spainyards" which is remarquably written by an english man making a personal investigation.

This was an enjoyable, light book - a series of articles written by an American who moved, with his family, to live for a short while in Barcelona.

More a few tales of living and working overseas. It felt like an introduction or an advertisment for other works by Gompertz, without really going any where.

not that I know exactly what I DID expect. I read it but it was not spectacular. It was billed as funny and at best it was moderately amusing.
