Notes From A Very Small Island (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
It's not always easy to fit in with the village community. For Anthony and Ivana Stancomb, more often than not their endeavours on the island of Vis, their new home away from grey England, involve them in hilarious disasters. Attempting to start some projects up, they have to battle with maddening ex-communist authorities and highly suspicious locals. However, through this, they get to see the crippling legacies that communism and the recent war has left in the lives of their new neighbours. Notes From a Very Small Island is the follow-up to the bestselling Under a Croatian Sun, which tells the story of a couple upping sticks and leaving their humdrum life in London for the blue skies of a Croatian island. Although largely a light-hearted tale, the book is also a heartfelt insight into a community trying to adjust to being members of the EU and the ways of the Western World.
