He had a car, an apartment and a decent job, but he was bored. Then he saw an ad in an online forum: Teach English in Czechoslovakia. The year was 1991 and he thought: why not? So he applied and received his acceptance letter months later. In the autumn of 1992, just three years after the Berlin Wall came down, Jason Lockwood arrived in the Slovak Republic to teach English for a year. He went with few expectations and too much luggage. What he found was a torn country grasping at new beginnings, struggling to recover from decades of oppression and dictatorship. In this memoir, Jason Lockwood brings back for Western audiences a snapshot of an historic period in a far-off country, and offers prescriptions not only for that world, but for our own, too.
