The book is a memoir about my life; thus, I am qualified. I lived in Shanghai's International Settlement and French Concession, protected by foreign troops and warships, from 1926 to 1940, then in Cuba-1953-55; Venezuela, 1955-59; finally Guatemala, 1965-70, the years of my memoir. Today, at age eighty-seven, I live with my wife in a retirement community, Rockwood Forest Estates, in Spokane, Washington State. It's a nfiction memoir, Expatriate Adventure. It tells of my life in Shanghai from age two to fifteen, 1926-40, in the French Concession and International Settlement, eventually surrounded by Japanese armies who had driven out Chinese troops from the area surrounding these foreign jurisdictions in the Si-Japanese war beginning in 1937, ending with the defeat of Japan in World War II. Later, married and with a growing family, we lived as expatriates in Latin America, beginning as a trainee in Havana, 1953; then assistant manager in Caracas, Venezuela; then regional manager in Guatemala City, for eight countries. These assignments were t consecutive, being interrupted by assignments in New York, t described because it's t expatriate living and therefore outside the theme of this memoir.
