Jerez Diary offers its readers a truly unique perspective on life in Andalucía; a perspective that eludes the average ex-pat author who rarely has insight into that most important of Iberian institutions: the Spanish family. Jerez Diary describes the sabbatical year the author spent with his Anglo-Hispanic family in his wife’s home town of Jerez de la Frontera on the south western coast of Spain, la Costa de la Luz. It not only describes the ups and downs of a modern Spanish family - often funny, occasionally infuriating but never dull - but gets inside the life of one of Andalucía’s most culturally-important cities. Not just the home of sherry, but one of the places to see the living legends of flamenco, experience the week-long party that is feria and to observe the fascinating phenomenon of Holy Week.
