Ep.99 Jay Martin – Vodka and Apple Juice

When Jay’s husband lands a diplomatic job in Warsaw, she jumps at the opportunity to escape her predictable life in Canberra for a three-year adventure in the heart of central Europe.

Jay shelves her corporate wardrobe and throws herself into life as a diplomatic wife. Between glamorous cocktail parties and ambassadorial shenanigans, Jay sets out to get to know quirky, difficult, fascinating Poland, with its impenetrable language and sometimes unfathomable customs.

It’s a challenge even for an intrepid traveller with a willing heart. Not to mention a marriage that increasingly doesn’t look as if it will survive its third Polish winter.

  1. What a great interview, Rose. Really interesting chat about the book, Jay’s experiences, and her motivations for writing. There’s nothing like a ‘warts and all’ story, so will definitely add this to the reading list. Another great find amongst Australian women writers.
