Spain Exposed

Posted by Dreamer

An amusing book, Spain Exposed shines light on life in the country through the eyes of long-time British expat Rob Innis.

In Spain Exposed, author Rob Innis takes an affectionate look at Spain as he explores everything from the sparrows in his fig tree to the Spanish Constitution to his Spanish mother-in-law. The book is a collection of Mr. Innis’ previously published work, combining short fiction, articles and blog posts, during his 12 years (and counting) as an expat in Spain.

The Spain Exposed collection makes for some enjoyable light reading. My favorite part is the short story “The Life of an Errant Expat”, a modern riff on Cervantes’ Don Quijote. The tale follows the spirit of the original classic and is quite funny in its gentle ribbing of expat life in Spain.

The book begins with blog post sketches ruminating on aspects of life in Spain through the eyes of a British expat, follows with articles presenting some interesting musings and historical stories, and then concludes with “The Life of an Errant Expat.” However, I would have preferred the collection to have started off with the modern Quijote tale instead. I think that would have set a better tone for the rest of the book. In any case, reading Spain Exposed is a good way to while away a quiet afternoon.

Spain Exposed. Rob Innis. 2012. 91 pages. Buy the book in Europe or buy the book in North America.
