The Postcards Trilogy

Postcards From Across the Pond – dispatches from an accidental expat, is a collection of laugh-out-loud essays about life among the English. Postcards… details Harling’s introduction to life in Britain, where every activity, no matter how mundane, pulls him out of his comfort zone and leaves him floundering in the deep end of cultural confusion.

What Readers Say:
     Harling has created something really special, a book packed full of wonderfully-written essays on what it’s like to be a clueless Yank in Old Blighty. Whether you travel the world in airliners or armchairs, you’ll find a lot to love in this book.

    The most entertaining writer I’ve come across for a long time.

More Postcards From Across the Pond is a continuation of Harling’s hilarious chronicles. Now a seasoned veteran of expat life, and no longer baffled by simple tasks such as mailing a letter or buying shoelaces, he turns his eye toward the minutiae of daily life and the foibles that challenge his sanity both as a newly minted British citizen and as a human being. More Postcards From Across the Pond is a chronicle, not so much about what divides us, but what makes us the same.

What Readers Say:
     Better than its predecessor; Harling is at the top of his game here with even better stories and anecdotes about life as an expat in Britain.

    Very entertaining and laugh out loud funny.

In Postcards From Ireland, Harling returns to the origins of his expat past, recounting the two weeks of lashing rain, horrendous heat, left-side driving and slogging through the marshlands of Ireland that, ultimately, changed his life.

What Readers Say:
     First thing I’ve read in a very long time that made me laugh out-loud on almost every page!

    From the very beginning I was hooked; it is so well written it seems as if he is sitting across the table with a Guinness talking to you with just the right amount of ambient mirth.
