You're an expatriate. You've lost touch with the soil. You get precious.
Fake European standards have ruined you. You drink yourself to death.
You become obsessed by sex. You spend all your time talking, not working.
You are an expatriate, see. You hang around cafés.
Expatriates have long been known to form communities within communities, which are neither fully a part of their past homeland or present host country. Within these environments writers and artists have often emerged, seeking to enjoy the unique cultural atmosphere created by this form of collective exile.
Areas being discussed are going to be wide-ranging in time and location, but all will be linked by our common theme of expatriation.
