    2. Nothing makes you feel like a member of your own country like leaving it for another one As an elderly spinster, I suspect that I m NOT the demographic this author expects to reach with his frequently raunchy memoirs about his life abroad Well, I read and enjoy them anyway and you can try to stop me.His story is an increasingly common one Unfocused and unambitious as a young man, he drifted into teaching English abroad and never drifted back out of it After a few years in Thailand, he fetched up [...]

    3. This is the 3rd memoir I ve read by ETX, and after reading through almost 20 years of his life I m a little sad that I ve reached the end of his catalogue This book ends in 2014, so we may be waiting a while for another new bookX s new book moves away from his hedonistic past in Russia and SEA, and instead follows his teaching experience in the Middle East, where he opted for financial security over chasing cheap booze and cheaper girls Requiem isn t completely limited to just the Middle East ho [...]
