One of the Reviews

Heinke Pauly, born in Germany, has led a colourful and somewhat surreal life which is reflected in her humorous writings. After stints living in Manchester, the Hebrides and Edinburgh, she found herself in Spain a few years ago and has been writing ever since. Her book is based on a travelling and camping adventure across Spain retracing the footsteps of a dead poet that she had fallen madly in love with. The poet was Laurie Lee and the seminal work that turned her head to mush was As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning. What follows is an hilarious escapade of her adventures and misadventures along the route. She has a wonderful way of drawing the reader into her odd, offbeat world. From cultivating a tortoise on her upper lip and having semi-lucid conversations with her dog Misty Blue, (pictured above) to spending her nights with Messrs. Whyte and Mackay, peeing up trees and sitting in toilet blocks in empty campsites playing her electric organ and singing at the top of her voice, she lives the free life of a funky-monkey grandmother on the run. Ignore the printing errors (publisher‘s fault not the author’s) and you have a rollercoaster journey through the strange and colourful kaleidoscopic domain of Ms Pauly.

How to get a copy of the book

As regular blog readers will know I have experienced some printing problems but I now have a supply of my book - albeit with some minor printing errors (I might run a competition to see who can spot them all!)

However friends who have read the book say these do not detract too much from the story and so if you want a (slightly misprinted) copy please let me have your details and I can arrange shipment for 6€ plus P&P.

Or go to AMAZON here
