BOOGIEMAN AND HIS CAT IN ANDALUCIA
Jim Mackie’s new book about his life as a piano man in Almería:
Jim came to Almería to say “Yes” to every chance of playing music. His wacky adventures include performing with an opera singer in prison, a teetotal Scottish ceilidh, a violin-playing Elvis impersonator, a stretch Shirley Bassey, a jazz funeral, a novel tribute to The Shadows – and possibly the most unromantic Valentine’s night in history. But the real star of the book is Jim’s black rescue cat Sammy,
who has turned his house into a Tom & Jerry film. “Stuff happens” to the boogieman, and this book really is unlike anything else you’ve read about Spain, music and cats.
Available on Amazon and Waterstones as a paperback and Kindle edition. Also available in local outlets including Total Entertainment, 8.95€.
