David Collins, otherwise known as the "Algarve Asparagus Man", will be signing copies of his debut novel "The Algarve Asparagus Man Plus One" at the Oasis Cafe in Lagos on 17th May from 2pm.
This is a relocation book like no other. Read about David Collins' crazy but ultimately successful scheme to leave a well-paid career in the UK and reinvent himself as the ‘Algarve Asparagus Man' in a tiny Portuguese village way back in the 1980s. You'll be laughing and you'll be crying when you read about the trials and tribulations he and his wife had to endure: flash floods and frosts which nearly ruined the first asparagus crop; the colourful Portuguese locals; the struggle to learn Portuguese; and the twists and turns at every bureaucratic step of their journey.
