'Tom Stacey, a former correspondent of the Sunday Times, writes with verve and humour about a world he knows inside out. Moving, intense, profound, Tom Stacey's prose is so crisp and light that you seem barely to skim along the surface, yet this is one of the most haunting novels I have read for years'
Residents Abroad

A once famous world-roving correspondent, now self-exiled on an island in the Persian Gulf, is an old and forgotten man. When the coup happens it seems he is the last to know. His mind torn between the present and the past as he constantly relives the great love affair that brought him to the island, he sees the last great story of his life slipping away from him, until a meeting with his old friend, the deposed Emir, places a worldwide scoop in his hands.
