Mid-life crisis? Just head to southern Spain

The Cats of the River Darro e

TWO British expats have joined forces to create an attractive novel set in Andalucia.

The Cats of the River Darro recounts an English teacher’s adventures as he settles into his new life in Granada after a mid-life crisis.

Written by 51-year-old Liverpudlian author Derek Dohren, who lives in Granada, the book was illustrated by Natasha Phillips, 25, also Granada-based.

The book is available on Amazon.com, with the Kindle version priced at just €0.89.


  1. Granada is top if you are under 20… I know my daughter is there UNIVERSITY… get on the train and then the bus to Tarifa… much more comodo for oldies. Really Really.

  2. Gary, Granada is a stunning City, it has it all -for all ages. The romantic splendour of the Alhambra Palace, the Moorish quarter, shopping, nightlife, real Flamenco. Fiestas and folklore…never too old!

  3. Hi EnglishDragon. Thanks very much for your comment. We are sorry you see it that way. The Olive Press is an expat newspaper and our La Cultura section covers interesting things that expats are doing, that are related to Spanish culture. We hope they will interest our readers. We have no interest in merely promoting books.
