On a storm-swept September afternoon in Goa, Frank Simoes finally found what he had been searching for for so many years: that perfect acre by the sea. And there he began to build his dream house, Rockheart.
This book began as the story of his labours, but eventually became one Goan’s discovery of his idyllic native land. It is peopled by a colourful cast of characters, ranging from Leopold da Gama Rose, who saved himself from a fate worse than death by hiding beneath his mother’s skirts to Remo, the famous rock musician; from Felix Xavier Fernando, the confidant of cobras to Barty o and Bostao, surely the world’s only feni-fuelled car-washing experts.
This is more than just a travel book. Thanks to Frank Simoes perceptive eye and abiding love for all things. Goan, it is a delightful, finely-etched portrait of a people and their way of life.
