Editorial Reviews

Review

'Matthew Hirtes probably knows more about Gran Canaria than many who were born there.' Louise Parkin, editor Living Spain magazine. 'Clearly, there is something for everyone: both in the book and in Gran Canaria.' Chris Marshall, Telegraph Expat columnist. 'With a rare depth of insight, Matthew weaves his personal experiences through an engaging narrative to show us a different face to Gran Canaria.' Andrea and Jack Montgomery authors of Going Native in Tenerife.

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Matthew Hirtes was born in Waltham Forest, north-east London in the early 1970s, grew up in the East Midlands, before returning to the capital to study at London University in 1991. Upon graduation, a chance encounter in a Camden boozer with cult Face magazine writer Gavin Hills launched a career in journalism. So far, this has taken in deputy editorship of The Official Chelsea Magazine and covering the Canaries, he's lived in Gran Canaria since 2004, for the likes of Condé Nast Traveller and The Independent. His first book, Going Local in Gran Canaria, is a travel guide for the discerning traveller as well as a handbook for those looking to make a fresh start overseas. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
