New, gift-quality. The Foreign Experience in the Land of the Morning Calm. Pp. 448. The first book of its kind to document the lives of foreigners in Korea firsthand, Faces of Korea is a collection of 47 interviews with people from more than 20 countries on five continents. Set up in a narrative format, which makes reading the interviews as enthralling as it does educational, subjects in the book include working in Korea, romantic relations with Koreans, people of Korean descent, teaching in Korea, learning in Korea and people who have made Korea their adopted home. Reviews: You won t find a more accurate and moving expose of the expat experience in Korea, at least one that not only bridges the foreign community but also one that gives the community a strong, resonant voice. -Jeffrey Miller, Korea Times For newcomers, the book will be an indispensable account of what life is truly like here [in Korea] from all different angles. On the other hand, people who have been living here for a while will find it interesting because they will be able to relate to the stories. -Lisa Lebeda, Seoul Classified "Faces of Korea is an attractive book and took more care and time putting together than the reader might originally suspect. The author s diligence and persistence in bringing together the cacophony of voices and experiences into a readable and approachable format is to be lauded and welcomed...[and] the reader will put the book down with a better understanding of the complex face of the foreign community in Korea, indeed, into the expat experience in general. Faces of Korea may indeed very well serve the purpose its author holds out for it, of building bridges within the foreign community in Korea and between it and native Koreans. "-Daniel Cane, Korean Quarterly
