'Original, perceptive and very entertaining' - Alison Lurie, Spectator

Fresh from London, Christine and Donald Manley have come to the alien swelter of Karachi: Christine to conceive a child, Donald to sell the Pill for a pharmaceutical company.

Among the ex-pats already there is straight-talking Duke Hanson, whose all-American values cannot prevent him falling, then sinking, helplessly in love with a sophisticated Pakistani girl.

In the ensuing tangle of Anglo-Oriental relations, the strangest things for those who have come out East are revealed in the very people with whom they arrived..
