From marauding monkeys to strange men in her bedroom, from Africa to Australasia to America, with stops in Melanesia, the Caribbean and Europe along the way, Apple Gidley vividly sketches her itinerant global life. The challenges of expatriation, whether finding a home, a job or a school are faced mostly with equanimity. Touched with humour and pathos, places come alive with stories of people met and cultures learned, with a few foreign faux pas added to the mix.

Starting her expatriate life in Nigeria at a month old, Apple has relocated 26 times through 12 countries. Her roles, as well as wife and mother, have include editing a magazine for an international charity, selling dive equipment and springing Distressed British Nationals from goal. An Anglo-Australian, known to many through her popular blog as ExpatApple, she believes to be a true global nomad we have to be actively engaged in wherever we call home, for the moment.
