Spanish Journals: The Posthumous Diary of an Expat

The Spanish Diaries Part One (Small)  The Spanish Diaries Part Two (Small) The Spanish Diaries Part Three (Small) The Spanish Diaries Part Four (Small)

This fictional diary is, of course, inspired by my time in Spain, particularly the last few years when I found myself in the company of ‘expats’ for the first time. Despite the conviction held by at least a couple of reviewers that Ernest Postlethwaite is (or was) a real person and actually wrote the diaries, I can assure any future readers that he isn’t and he didn’t!

~ A hilarious blow by blow account of six unforgettable months in the life of an expatriate Englishman.

Ernest Postlethwaite was a man embarking on a new life. No longer for him the routine and drudgery of the commuter…

The first part of Ernest Postlethwaite’s groundbreaking journal charters the course of a man on a mission to achieve cultural and linguistic integration in a small village in southern Spain.

This unadulterated manuscript will bring tears to the eyes of the most hard-hearted amongst us, as we follow his footsteps into the great unknown.

– ‘This diary, written by my late husband, Ernest Postlethwaite, has been published expressly against his wishes, but with the full and hearty endorsement of my family and friends.’ –
