It is 1966 and Mike Upjohn is offered a job with the Nassau Telegraph. What seems, at the outset, a wonderful posting soon turns into a complex of Bahamian culture tugging at the tail-end of colonialism. And stuck in the middle is Upjohn's new colleague, Poldi Stein. A budding author, Upjohn decides to put down his journal of the ensuing events in book form, covering Stein's descent from easy-going journalist and property owner to scandal-ridden westerner at odds with the changing balance of power.In The Expatriates, Henry Toledano weaves together a Rum Diary type cultural collision which fizzes along at quite a clip.

Henry Toledano was born in Egypt and at 14 was sent to public school in England. Subsequently he went to London University where he got a degree in economics. Then he travelled round the world for two years, earning his keep much of the way. He has been part owner of two book stores and presently sells out of print books online.
