Christopher Jackson’s life on the move—over thirty years living in various countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa—has provided him with a unique perspective on the United States. The bemused, affectionate, but sometimes exasperated, detachment that only professional expatriates can develop for the land of their birth informs Jackson’s writing as he explores the sometimes dark but always absurd corners of American life. He is the author of FreedomLand, the forthcoming novel Deep Reservations and is currently writing a third novel, Show Me. He resides with his wife and two children somewhere in Africa. He maintains thirty minutes of U.S. cable news per day—if he can stand it—provides the fodder for another ten novels.
