Book Description Awa Press, New Zealand, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When a young Hamish Beaton steps off the plane to teach English in Japan, little does he know that he s in for the three year ride of his life. Jetlagged and dazed, he is swept up into a mystifying world. As he tries to make sense of it, he encounters an astonishing cast of characters - young women with clothing fetishes, middle-aged housewives who cook him meals in exchange for English conversation, a bizarre elderly couple who take him on a nerve-wracking expedition, fellow teachers with eccentric habits, and - of course - his student, whom he must somehow instruct, despite a total lack of teaching experience. Written with spirited humour, a self-depreciating eye, and an engaging style, this is travel writing at its best. Bookseller Inventory # UGH9780958275026
