When Mr Alec Quigley, superannuated insurance clerk, leaves the Bedfordshire bungalow of his indomitable niece Angela and makes his way to the Spanish village that he once read about in a history book, things are unlikely to go smoothly. A man with many foibles, not least his tendency to fantasise, his guardian Angela wants him home before he can get into any of the frequent scrapes that have dogged his - and, of late, her - existence. He is, however, intent on carving out a new life for himself in the Spanish interior and soon enlists the help of Fernando the fireman, Jorge the restaurateur and Salvador the soak to repel the imminent invasion of Angela. When love between himself and Fernando's older sister rears its hypnotic head, the stage is set for a showdown between Mr Quigley, reality and his niece. This is, according to Mr Quigley, a true story.

The authors also guide employers through the appeals process, demonstrating how to prepare, organize, and present a UIC case.

Human resource managers in universities and schools, non-profit organizations, and attorneys and paralegals will also find it valuable.
1953 and over half a decade following the war it is a good time to undertake National Service. But for Jean, the lure of working overseas means she will volunteer as a teacher with the RAF. Starting in Egypt, Jean spends the next five years (including a renewal of contract in 1956) travelling Africa and the Middle East in a career that would, as prophesised by a fortune teller at the village fete, "... seem like a holiday."
