Much has changed in Papua New Guinea in the years following
Independence, but much as remained the same. White expatriates
still form a rich, privileged but impermanent minority. Few of them
have a long-term commitment to the country. The local inhabitants
are often relegated to roles as domestic servants, subordinates at
work, or as partners in brief sexual flings. Among the expatriates
themselves, relations are complicated by boredom, jealousy and
self-importance. These highly readable stories range from the
tragic to the ribald. They reflect expatriate life in urban PNG and
illustrate some of its major preoccupations: insecurity, money,
drink, sex. Originally published in 1992, this edition includes a
new preface by the author.
