Expat Days

by Steve Rosse


A perceptive insight of expat life in Thailand, with a pleasing blend of humour and shrewd comment. Read stories that shed light on a place that millions of tourists every year find fascinating, puzzling, and infuriating.

About The Author:

In 1988 Steve Rosse took a break from a career in the New York City film and television industry for a three-month holiday on Phuket, an island off the Western coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea.

He decided he liked Phuket more than he liked New York, and without any idea of what he'd do for a living, he took up residence on the island. He supported himself, and eventually his wife and children, for most of the next decade as a freelance journalist and columnist.

His column, "The Rock", apeared in The Nation, Thailand's Independent Newspaper, every Sunday for five years. The stories in this book first appeared in publications around the Pacific Rim, from Honolulu to Christchurch.

In 1997 he quit writing and moved to Iowa for the surfing.


"Steve Rosse is Phuket's Samuel Pepys, and it's Groucho Marx, too"

John Magee, Publisher, The Phuket Gazette.

"Steve Rosse has a keen eye for catching the foibles of both expats and Thais, and a sense of irony that positions their parallel worlds in perfect dissonance."

Joe Cummings, author of “Lonely Planet Thailand”

“As good as any writer I have read on the slapstick and the catastrophe of the expatriate experience.”

David Lida, author of “Travel Advisory”

“Steve Rosse¹s touching, insightful and humorous short takes on life in Thailand are consistently the best I have ever read.”

Jerry Hopkins, author of “Thailand Confidential”

“A stranger in a strange land, Rosse illuminates our own society while poking around in this alien one.”

Joe Haldeman, author of “Vietnam and Other Alien Worlds”

“Travelers will recognize Rosse's Phuket. But even those who have never been will see the exotic beautifully drawn idols, ocean, orchids, and rain.”

Ann Bauer, author of “A Wild Ride Up the Cupboards”

“A perceptive insight of life on Phuket, with a pleasing blend of humour and shrewd comment. A thoroughly entertaining read.”

Roger Crutchley, Bangkok Post
