9780522852424: Leaving Paradise: My Expat Adventures and Other Stories

This entertaining and thoughtful personal investigation examines the boom in Australian expatriatism—the ideals, reality, and dislocation of being an Australian living abroad—and the often heart-wrenching decision to return home. Exploring the glamour and the lure of the bewitching big city and the pain of nostalgia, this chronicle analyzes the reasons almost one million compatriots have uprooted their lives, families, and careers to join the global community.
