Christopher Jackson

Christopher Jackson's life on the move--over thirty years living in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa--has provided him with a unique perspective on the United States. The bemused, affectionate, 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. Christopher Jackson is the author of FreedomLand and the forthcoming novel Deep Reservations. He currently resides with his wife and two children somewhere in Africa where, he maintains, thirty minutes of U.S. cable news per day--if he can stand it--provides the fodder for another ten novels.
