Synopsis

Set in the The Kingdom of Bahrain, in a time when the pace of life was slower, the pages of this extraordinary odyssey are crowded with everything from sex-mad expatriates, a ghost and a mermaid to an encounter with the veteran foreign correspondent who felled Max Schmeling. There are lotharios and lesbians, a high seas murder, a two-fisted British prison warder, and the Bahrainis themselves, gentle and generous, who provide the backdrop for this revealing insight into a way of life largely gone, from the coffee ritual at the palace to crafts of yesteryear. From drunken diplomats to drunken journalists, Andrew Trimbee lifts the lid on life in a facinating, but mysterious, country as he intervenes to save his newspaper. The Inshallah Paper is a non-stop roller-coaster ride through drama, pathos, humour and suspense in a desert island setting straight out of the Arabian Nights. www.theinshallahpaper.com
