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 Upjohns new colleague, Poldi Stein.
A budding author, Upjohn decides to put down his journal of the ensuing events in book form, covering Steins 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.
