Expatriates . . .

. . . at home from  home

(from Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson)
". . . The paneled door rises a story high and would befit a museum or government office but is actually the front door of a Spanish Revival south of Wilshire. The door opens, and there stands a onetime bourbon-swilling army captain and deft-handed surgeon who, now in hi later years, is a regular at the blackjack tables and the trifectas at Santa Anita. But he is, at the heart of it all and perhaps most important, a lon-standing, still bitter, and somewhat obsessive expatriate from the twentieth-century South, the heartbreak Jim Crow land he chose to reject before it could reject him again. . .

                                                         substantially, with the working title "Going")
