Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Andalucia by Chris Stewart

Summary: An American buys a house in South America and wants to live there while maintaining American standards. 

Lacking the charm and delight that A Year in Provence had, this book seemed comically stupid. I couldn't finish it because I didn't care enough about the author to hope anything turned out for him. The last thing we need is an American buffoon mocking the traditions and slower-paced life of other countries.
