Coming out in 2017, my second book is a radical deconstruction of the Brit Abroad genre (see, for example, A Year In Provence, or Driving Over Lemons) . Yes, it’s “about” me (again) my family and our idyllic life in Spain (zzzz) but it’s also – perhaps more – about the under-explored and relatively unknown province of Caceres, which lies in Extremadura. Its people, its history, its culture, traditions and peculiarities. Above all, its peculiarities.  Naturally, this being a Plankton book, it will include digressions into Russian cinema, South American dictatorships, peregrination in Wales and Saudi Arabia, celebrity speed freaks and wild swimming in Scotland. Fasten your seat belts – it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
