"Author Delorys Welch Tyson is a keen social observer whose satirical works pull no punches!

"Verrry humorous, with an erotic touch!,
The character Amelia Jackson, the international pop star brings to mind Diana Ross. I am not sure if that was the author's intention, but the idea certainly held me throughout the story.
The author created a new type of American expatriate story, taking place in an unexpected place, with an unexpected and riotous cast of characters. Sexy yet mis-matched couples, gallant opportunists, and eccentric artist types parade through this tale of American misadventures abroad. I thorougly enjoyed this novel. "
