Jack Scott’s Expat Glossary

Springtime author, Jack Scott, spent four years in Turkey and started an irreverent narrative about his new life. Quite by chance, his blog became one of the most popular on that side of the Aegean. This led directly to his best-selling memoir, Perking the Pansies and the sequel, Turkey Street. To add a little descriptive colour to his writing, Jack devised or purloined some new words and phrases to depict the numerous variants of the expat species he encountered along the way. Jack’s tongue was firmly in his cheek.
