"I loved this book," wrote Lonely Planet. "I must have laughed out loud at least once in every chapter... The advice in the book is terrific."
Dancing in the Fountain takes its title from one blazing hot night when the author and her husband found themselves sitting on the edge of a big stone fountain. Dabbling their feet in the cool water, pretty soon they were wading, then waltzing in the fountain. An old man passing by growled, "Hey you two, is that any way to behave? You wouldn't do that back where you come from." And that's the whole point. Living overseas, you get to try things you'd never do back home.
Rita Golden Gelman, author of Tales of a Female Nomad, says, "What fun. . . McCann's wacky sense of humor will have you smiling on every page. Just reading this will give you the confidence of an experienced traveler."
"Creating a new life in an old European city has never been so delightful, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny," says Victoria Twead, NY Times bestselling author of Two Old Fools on a Camel.

Often funny, sometimes sad, but never boring Dancing in The fountain is a wonderful memoir of an American couple's slow (and sometimes painful) integration into the pandemonium that defines Seville. In Karen McCann's hands Seville leaps off the page and assaults you with its sounds, smells, traditions, culture and above all its people.
