REVEALING ACCOUNT OF THE DESTRUCTION OF ONE WOMAN’S PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY AMID ASIA’S CULTURAL QUICKSAND
Read the unvarnished truth about the expat lifestyle in Singapore Salvation.
The “extremely entertaining” Jennifer Burge understands the challenges of life abroad. A professional trailblazer with a wanderlust affliction, she refused to give up after documenting the pitfalls of taking her career from the United States to Europe in her first memoir, The Devil Wears Clogs. Instead, the story continues where we left her–in the Netherlands on the eve of her move to Singapore. On arrival, she is confounded by the subtle complexity of Asian cultures, her understanding of local tradition is a mirage, appearing and disappearing with each new interaction.
Moving to Southeast Asia when the rigidity of European life began to wear on her seemed to be the perfect solution. A sophisticated modern condo in the heart of a developing nation was the answer to her prayers—or so she thought. The entrance of the Global Financial Crisis compounded the already-challenging international job search to an unprecedented level. Living in her fourth country without her professional status or a peer network leaves Jennifer to question her identity. Solo travel across Asia allows her to create an authentic one.
