People In a Place Apart by Len Port


Len Port is a journalist based in the Algarve, Portugal, where I have lived for the past 25 (nearly 26!) years. He is also a former boss of mine. Len is one of those writers that keeps you hanging on his every word. I've always loved reading his articles but this is the first time he has written a book for the Kindle. Although I haven't read it, yet, I'm sure this will be a fantastic read for anyone interested in this small part of the world. Here are some details about the book....
The ‘Land Apart’ in the title refers to the Algarve, the most southern province in Portugal and the most southwestern extremity of mainland Europe. In ancient times it was steeped in mysticism because it was thought to be on the very edge of the world. It is still a marginal, alluring and enchanting place. This book, written by a veteran journalist who has lived here for years, focuses not so much on the place but its people. It is full of fascinating insights into the comings and goings of various cultures and remarkable individuals - some famous, some infamous – from the dawn of history to the present day. It's an easy read and sure to be enjoyed by anyone with any interest in Portugal, particular those who live in the region or plan to visit.
