Outside Lola's

An uplifting contemporary romantic comedy driven by four characters, Outside Lola’s is set in Andalucia. Redundant, now separated, life has fizzled out for Jack, so it’s off to Mojacar to stay with old friend Robert. After a chance encounter with two Spaniards on the beach, Beatriz lights up his world and moves him in a way he’d not foreseen. Increasingly seduced by a shot at new romance, he has to weigh this against news of his wife’s health concerns. When they have to leave behind the Alhambra to rescue the hapless Robert and Alfredo from their habitual incompetence, they’re drawn ever closer — but can he throw off the shackles from thirty years of marital repression and will Robert ever discover anything he’s good at? Set in the summer of 2018 and played out to a backdrop of Almeria’s cinematic heritage and Andalucian history, culture and landscape, Outside Lola’s is an optimistic story of relationships, of recovery and discovery. Sometimes poignant, often darkly humorous, it highlights the way our lives are shaped by chance. The nature of the story and its range of locations make Outside Lola’s a good choice for holiday reading, or increasingly as a nostalgic look back at a time when we could fly to sunnier climes! The author’s affection for the region is evident and his first hand experience brings authenticity. The descriptions and information relating to places of interest in Almeria and Granada in particular are likely to appeal to travellers and anyone who loves Andalucia.
