A reissue of Peter Kerr's second Mallorca-based travel memoir, previously titled Mañana Mañana

Having succumbed to the mañana pace of rural Mallorca, spring sees Peter Kerr and family relaxing into a supposedly simpler way of life, growing oranges on their little valley farm. However, even after the trials, tribulations and triumphs of their initiation, Spain has not yet finished with them. Embarrassing subtleties of the language, brushes with local police, the unfortunate outcome of a drinking session . . . surprises aplenty test the resolve, stamina and sense of humor of the Kerr family. This engaging account of tranquilo life celebrates all the charm of Mallorca: where you seldom do today what can be more judiciously put off till mañana! Previously titled Mañana Mañana. 


"People are already making comparisons between A Year in Provence and Mañana Mañana. But at the risk of committing travel writing heresy, some readers may like Mañana Mañana better. It's often funnier, grittier and more textured than Mayle's best-selling book." —Bookpage
