Inside the luxurious and comfortable hotel suite, a click could be heard and the door was opened by someone from outside. The drunk woman was carried into the room by a slightly sneaky figure. When she realized that the owner of the room had left temporarily, she sent the alcohol reeking woman to the large and soft bed without hesitation.
When a boat carrying asylum seekers is wrecked south of Adelaide, local teenager Josh hides one of the escapees in his shed.

The tension builds as Josh combats different threats to Habib's safety, culminating in an exciting climax on the day of his sister's wedding.

In August, 2003 I made arrangements to teach English in China, but when I got there, there was no job. So begins a very interesting six-month stay in Beijing. Within these pages you'll hear stories of college life, the move to a market economy, corruption, burnout, mobsters, government as benevolent parent, the surprising gravitation to all things Western, and the tribulations of a foreigner trying to start a new business. (Oh, yes, and the experiences of a newbie teaching English in a foreign land!) You are also introduced to some of my students, who in their own words talk about their lives, aspirations, and frustrations.
