Expat Novels and Books

Expat experiences put into writing go well beyond the chore of assembling facts about a place, but record the human feelings impacted by a (previously) foreign culture and location. If the author loves a location, that comes across, and if an author dislikes or has made themselves confront the good and the bad about a place, it is a window into that world through another person's humanity.

The Collected Greece

This book Fodor's The Collected Traveler: Greece collects 30 pieces of journalism and writing about Greece that spans decades (and centuries on occassion) along with a hefty introduction by the editor (Barrie Kerper) that is an affectionate tribute to going to Greece, being in Greece or wanting to return. The scope of the books covers a lot - the islands, Athens, Greek food, Greek attitudes, and a regular reference in the text to the sheer historical splendor of the place.
