Thomas A. Squire

Dad Abroad is a light-hearted sharing of a journey that is not usually travelled by men. This book covers the highs and lows, the foibles and contemplations of a regular guy as he navigates new countries, hangs with the kids, mingles with the mums, submits more completely to domestic chores, and tries his best to avoid isolation and talking about nappy changes … and his search for meaning and “flow” in the process.

Synopsis
Specification

Thomas A. Squire was a regular guy doing a regular job when his far from regular wife gave him a call with some news. By the end of that five-minute conversation, he had decided to leave his regular job and follow his wife on a posting to Ho Chi Minh City and San Francisco – as a trailing spouse cum stay-at-home dad. 

Dad Abroad is a light-hearted sharing of a journey that is not usually travelled by men. This book covers the highs and lows, the foibles and contemplations of a regular guy as he navigates new countries, hangs with the kids, mingles with the mums, submits more completely to domestic chores, and tries his best to avoid isolation and talking about nappy changes … and his search for meaning and “flow” in the process.


Thomas A. Squire
Thomas A. Squire was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand, where he met his future wife, Marjorie, a diplomat with the Singapore foreign service. Upon following her back to Singapore, he immediately became fascinated with the history of his new home. It was conversations with his father-in-law, a retired army officer, about his life in Singapore that was the genesis of this, Thomas’ first book. A pilot and mathematician by training, a tech worker by trade, and a foreigner who has lived in Singapore for almost twenty years, Thomas’s writing brings a new dimension to the story of Singapore.
