Jack and Liam move to Turkey

Jack Scott

A bitter-sweet tragi-comedy that recalls the first year of a British gay couple living in a Muslim land. Just imagine the absurdity of two openly gay, recently married middle aged, middle class men escaping the liberal sanctuary of anonymous London to relocate to a Muslim country. Jack and Liam, fed up with kiss-my-arse bosses and nose-to-nipple commutes, chuck in the towel and move to a small town in Turkey. Join the culture-curious gay couple on their bumpy rite of passage.

Don't miss Jack Scott's sequel to Perking the Pansies - Turkey Street, Jack and Liam move to Bodrum.

Empathetic, respectful and pretty acute.

Pat Yales on Time Out Istanbul wrote:

The book's originality lies more in it's honesty about the grubby reality of expat life that conventional travel literature prefers to gloss over.

At turns, hilarious, saucy, witty, heart-warming and incredibly moving.
