He's seeking a place to belong. His only tool is philosophical satire...

Thomas Gephardt loses no love for his rural Indiana home. Struck with raging wanderlust, the small-town college student heads for France armed with nothing but a thirst for stimulating conversation. So starts Thomas's ego-bruising first leg of his ill-fated quest for cultural perfection.

Struggling to fit in at the catty French cafés, Thomas expands his search to the bustling city streets of Japan and the quiet devotion of an Israeli Kibbutz. But after each stopover leaves him with more questions than answers, he worries no location will check every box on his ideal society list.

Will Thomas find his far-flung utopian land, or is this American expat lost in transit?

The Perfect Culture is a darkly satirical standalone travel novel. If you enjoy candid cultural commentary, unique perspectives, and detailed descriptions, then you'll love Brent Robins's international lampoon.
