Eating Kimchi and Nodding Politely

Stories About Love, life, Death, and Discovery From an American in South Korea

Authored by Alex Clermont

Imagine leaving behind everybody and everything familiar to live in a foreign country where you don't know a soul. Worst yet, you speak the language, your cultural norms match apples and oranges, and you can't get a date to save your life.

Imagine you wrote a book about your time there...

Eating Kimchi and Nodding Politely: Stories About Love, life, Death, and Discovery From an American in South Korea is a collection of snapshots that cover the two years that Alex Clermont lived in the country of South Korea as an English teacher. Scribed with a flair for humor, emotion, character and depth, these introspective narratives don't act as a travel guide. Instead, they are creatively written windows into the life of someone discovering new things about himself, the world, and the people who he shares it with-all while stuffing his face with kimchi.
