This is the collected, chronological, edited, EXPANDED edition of all the stories I originally posted on the website back in 2003 and 2004. And maybe 10 or 15 percent new material. Including the long-lost story of how I lost a job in Phuket Thailand after I snapped a kid's arm. That's worth $3.99, right?
In 1995, an exhausted, broke, parasite-infested backpacker answered an ad in a Bangkok newspaper, and inadvertently became English Teacher X.
From a tropical island paradise in Thailand to an industrial hellhole in post-Soviet Russia, this raw memoir describes, in violent imagery, the life of an English teacher overseas in the late 90's, with dishonest and exploitative employers, degenerate colleagues, corrupt police, gold-hearted prostitutes and cold-hearted English groupies, with plenty of drugs and alcohol for all.
English Teacher X's world serves as a cautionary tale for young people going overseas to teach, or a titillating taste of the many perks of the darker side of English teaching.
