Author, Kate Boyle talks about her novel Happy as a Partridge – Life and Love in Madrid. Kate spent two-and-a-half years living and teaching English in Madrid. Kate recounts her own experience of living in the Spanish capital which inspired her to write her first book whose protagonist is Evie Fuller, a girl approaching her thirties looking for a change of scene and renewed zest for life.
Kate shares the ups and downs of finding herself in Madrid after winning a competition, what made her stay for much longer than planned and what eventually took her back to her native London. Along the way Kate offers her insights on Spanish life, culture shocks, her days teaching English to a group of mechanics and what she misses about Spain.
