Author Joe Cawleyabout this book: Have you ever dreamed about throwing it all in and starting afresh... new country... new job... new culture? This is the true tale of a young British couple who swapped a career in fish entrails on a cold UK market to go and run a bar/restaurant in Spain's sub-tropical Canary Islands.

Despite a complete lack of business experience, zero knowledge of the Spanish language and a bank balance teetering on the red, they chased their dreams and succeeded, despite their run-ins with exploding gas canisters, mini-mafias, meddling expats and a psychotic cat called Buster.

The book will give you laughter, sadness and an overwhelming desire to slap the couple round the head with a wet fish and ask 'what the hell were you thinking about?'

But mostly More Ketchup than Salsa will make you think that if they could do it... maybe so can you!


• "Fantastic, hilarious, painful. Completely un-put-downable. Probably the best book I have read this millenium!"
