But six weeks soon turned into nine years, and helping out transformed into running the company.

During his stint, Tim discovered a booming city in hedonistic reaction to years of fascism, where the evenings lasted until dawn, sleep was something you only did at work, and five hour lunches invariably involved a plate of bulls testicles. Frothing with a language designed to make foreigners dribble, hospitalized by tapa-induced flatulence, and constantly frustrated by the unapproachable beauty of the women parading through the Vogue offices, he nevertheless fell in love with a city, a country, and its people—despite the fact he rarely has a clue what they’re talking about.

Tim Parfitts rise from unwanted guest to paparazzi-pursued mover in Spains glamorous social scene is a hilarious comedy of errors.
