The website says you can buy copies here in the Port at BFS and Hardley's Diner.

juliec, If you log onto euroweekly.com and select mallorca you will see the article about the author. Not an awful lot just a bit of background which you may have in the book.

Well, i finished the book last night and have to say i did enjoy it. Louie the Lip comes across as a guy who was a bundle of fun but was also a bit if a rogue, albeit a loveable one, he certainly knew how to party but also was a hard worker. Many characters came into his life, some larger than life and some were downright dodgy.
I found it interesting to learn how mass tourism and the club scene came to Mallorca, or "The Rock" as Louie calls it, also even back then there was a lot of corruption. The thing that is really obvious is that he truly does have the island in his soul.
