Topping the list of almost all the charts of expat book rankings is “Perking The Pansies” by Jack Scott. This is a non-fiction book compilation of Jack Scott’s Blog about his and his partner Liam’s experience as British Expats in Turkey. This is the story of an openly gay, recently married couple leaving the liberal crowd of merry old London for a conservative Muslim country. This is about as interesting as a context can get. Told in a very conversational and light tone, Jack takes you for a ride with him and Liam as they go through a series of interesting encounters. This book is full of entertaining narratives of real life experiences that will surely tickle your funny bones.
