This book examines the sensations of being a foreigner in a strange culture, as well as many other things. It is sympathetic of the many differences between cultures, not gloating about the author’s ‘superiority’ at the same time as it describes how hard it is to break through from one culture to another. It is a must-read for anyone planning to change countries, and it is a book that can be enjoyed repeatedly. It is made for delving into, and for reading snippets out to friends, particularly foreign friends, or friends who are foreign in that land. I enjoyed every page, and I look forward keenly to Jonathan Last’s next book. I recommend it unreservedly.
