Eating Kimchi and Nodding Politely
Stories About Love, life, Death, and Discovery From an American in South Korea
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.
