The book is filled with humorous insights and thoughtful analysis of travel, people and customs. It confirms the value and power of international travel as a source for broadening the mind and providing a wider view of humanity.

Robins is an avid world traveler who has globe-trotted through more than 40 countries, and six continents and this is his debut novel. It’s an exciting and thought-provoking piece of work.

“After all of these exotic experiences, I wanted to share them with a wider audience. This, combined with my interests in history and satire, made writing a novel quite desirable,” said Robins.

“The Perfect Culture” is the story of Thomas Gephardt, an American, who after graduating from college, attempts to expand his horizons while living overseas in three different places: France, Japan and Israel.

Determined to leave the confines of his sheltered upbringing in the United States, Gephardt spends three months with a French family in Bordeaux, before a romantic interest in Paris – an Israeli woman named Sendi – complicates matters. He remains in contact with Sendi while he lives abroad in Japan as an English teacher, and then in Israel as a volunteer on a kibbutz.

“The Perfect Culture” explores the value of foreign travel and examines how countries have been shaped by their complex history and cultural differences.

It’s available in soft cover, as an e-book, and as an audiobook and can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, and other online sites and bookstores around the globe.

“The audiobook helps bring alive the international feel of the book. The narrator, David George, has passports from three countries and he does about ten different accents,” said Robins.
