Dancing in the Fountain is "a delightfully well-written true-life adventure story," says New York Times bestselling author Chris Brady. "McCann's writing is inviting, immediately charming, and constantly entertaining." The book chronicles McCann's adventures moving from the American Midwest to Seville, Spain. "Living abroad is the best opportunity to reinvent yourself outside of the witness protection program," McCann says. "You get to hit the reset button on your life."
Dancing in the Fountain takes its title from one blazing hot night when the author and her husband found themselves sitting on the edge of a big stone fountain. Dabbling their feet in the cool water, pretty soon they were wading, then dancing in the fountain. It's technically legal to do this on hot nights in Seville, but an old man passing by growled, "Hey you two, is that any way to behave? You wouldn't do that back where you come from." And that's the whole point. Living overseas, you get to try things you'd never do back home.
"Dancing in the Fountain is perhaps the best book about travel that I have ever read," writes Guy Thatcher, author of Journey of Days. "It is full of wry humor and it is laugh-out-loud funny."
Rita Golden Gelman, author of Tales of a Female Nomad, says, "What fun. . . McCann's wacky sense of humor will have you smiling on every page. Just reading this will give you the confidence of an experienced traveler."
"Creating a new life in an old European city has never been so delightful, heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny," says Victoria Twead, author of Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools.
