The Waygook Book: A Foreigner's Guide to South Korea (Paperback)
Sometimes home is best understood from the other side of the world. It's Chicago in 2012, and Matthew has three jobs, two degrees, and one relentless itch to return home to Ohio. Rather than drive 317 miles east to Columbus, he and his wife travel 6600 miles west to teach English in South Korea. Follow Matthew as he navigates living, working and traveling in the Land of the Morning Calm. Whether he's plucking gray hairs for a co-teacher, visiting a toilet museum, or starring in a Johannes Gutenberg documentary, Matthew approaches each new adventure along his journey home with wit, heart, and a good dose of cluelessness.
