Stewart, Chris “Driving over Lemons”

Stewart, Chris “Driving over Lemons” - 1999

As a Genesis fan, I knew the name Chris Stewart, of course, but I didn't think the former drummer of this fabulous band was also a farmer in Spain and had written a book about it. And what an interesting one. I have read a few of these books about someone from a more Northern and/or richer country going to Southern Europe (Spain, France, Italy) to get away from it all, buy an old house, raise vegetables and some animals … I'm sure we all have.

This is a nice account of someone who changed his life at a young age and never looked back. We get to laugh with him about all the little problems that arise and rejoice about any little progress he makes.

Chris Stewart also writes two blogs, one in English, one in Spanish , you can get a little glimpse of his life here, as well.
