With a new introduction from Chris Stewart.21 years ago we set up Sort of Books to help our friend, the some-time Genesis drummer Chris Stewart, bring his sunlit stories of life on a Spanish mountain farm to print. Ever the optimist, Chris hoped to earn enough money to buy a second-hand tractor for his farm. He got his tractor, as the book spent a year on the Sunday Times Top 10 charts and went on to sell a million and a half copies. His story is a classic. A dreamer and an itinerant sheep shearer, he moves with his wife Ana to a mountain farm in Las Alpujarras, an oddball region in the south of Spain. Misadventures gleefully unfold as Chris discovers that the owner has no intention of leaving and meets their neighbours, an engaging mix of peasant farmers and shepherds and New Age travellers. Their daughter Chloë is born, linking them irrevocably to their new life. The hero of the piece, however, is the farm itself - a patch of mountain studded with olive, almond and lemon groves, sited on the wrong side of a river, with no access road, water supply or electricity. Could life offer much better than that?

El bisturí inglés. Literatura de viajes e hispanismo en lengua inglesa reúne diversos estudios realizados por algunos de los más prestigiosos investigadores y especialistas. Comienza con una amplia introducción sobre el papel que estos autores tuvieron y tiene, en la valoración de lo español en el extranjero. Le siguen estudios sobre el carácter de los españoles, Andalucía en las guerras napoleónicas, el comienzo de la famosa “leyenda negra” y la relación entre curiosidad y conocimiento en los viajeros que vienen a España. La cuestión de las viajeras inglesas y la opinión que se tiene sobre las mujeres españolas aparecen en otros dos capítulos. Síguese la descripción de la provincia de Jaén durante las primeras décadas del siglo XIX, y acaba el libro con algo tan actual como antiguo: los “expatriates” en España.
