The Spanish Cheese 'Sanwish' Without Bread

Overview

There cannot be many autobiographies that one can pick up, turn to almost any page, and something to bring a smile to the reader's lips. Fortunately this is one such book. Based mainly on the misfortunes of the writer, you might find yourself reading about how he was offered to be shown the whereabouts of precious stones in the Pyrenean Mountains by Britain's number one jewel thief, or being asked by a friend to place his ashes in beer cans and throw them into the English Channel.

Overview

There cannot be many autobiographies that one can pick up, turn to almost any page, and something to bring a smile to the reader's lips. Fortunately this is one such book. Based mainly on the misfortunes of the writer, you might find yourself reading about how he was offered to be shown the whereabouts of precious stones in the Pyrenean Mountains by Britain's number one jewel thief, or being asked by a friend to place his ashes in beer cans and throw them into the English Channel. Then again, it might be where the author is learning not to eat the ends of the bread whilst in Valencia's prison. Or he might be negotiating with a Spanish Customs official who eventually pays the import duty for him or another police official who asks him to smuggle. Perhaps he is dealing with the Catholic Church in respect of an old mill housing pigs, or being threatened with a seven pound radish. Then you also might find him having his hair cut by a one eyed barber who shaved one side of his head and invited him to lunch at a restaurant before completing the work. He might be explaining to the police how his trousers were stolen in a pub or negotiating over Elvis Presley's head. Perhaps you will come across him helping to run a radio station or coping with the hazards of 'Bootlegging'. There again he might be having a spontaneous 'Lie In' at the American Embassy, presenting a cookery program on Spanish TV, or a Radio program on the Costa Blanca. He might also be writing for a regional Spanish newspaper or handling the simple question of whether or not he requires bread with his cheese sandwich. It's all here, much more and very humorous.
