Banana Peels on the Tracks

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.
