Vienna: Mozart, coffee houses, The Blue Danube, Lipizzaner horses and Sacher tortes. Beneath the gossamer of this fabled capital lives a thriving international community of ex-patriots who try and navigate the unfamiliar customs and strange dilemmas being an outsider inside Austria.
These stories are a whimsical collection about the author’s life in a foreign country, the shock and trauma of having come directly from Los Angeles and a career in the movie business to live on the other side of the world.
Culled from observation, experience and first hand testimony; these stories are a glimpse of Vienna through the eyes of an ex-pat.
Some of us need to just click our heels to go home … some of us lose the way forever.
