Broken by divorce, debt, and workplace sexual harassment, twenty-six-year-old Bernadette Nason is hanging by a thread. When her cat is run over by a garbage truck, Nason makes an impetuous decision. With almost no travel experience, she grabs the first available overseas job and, within two months, finds herself in Libya. Fitting in has never been her strength, yet here she is, the most unstable, self-loathing, slightly overweight fish ever to throw itself recklessly out of its own water. Move over, Bridget Jones, theres a new, real-life idiot in town.Inspired by her expatriate adventures during Gaddafis turbulent regime, c. 1984-85, Nason covers her thwarted desire to fit in, from bizarre daily life to terrifying confrontations with the Morality Police. Told with candor and wit, TEA IN TRIPOLI, follows a young womans attempts to escape her past on an extraordinary, often perilous, journey of self-discovery. Its sure to resonate with anyone who has ever run away from problems instead of taking care of business.
