Fishnets in the Far East – A #TrueStory #BookSpotlight


Set in 1989, a year after the Olympic Games in South Korea, this is the true story of a young dancer, whose naive dream of working in the Far East turns into a nightmare.​

Signing a six month contract, she is whisked off to the other side of the world where she finds herself in a host of situations which she is ill-equipped to deal with. Dancing her way across South Korea with two friends, she is propositioned by the Mafia, turned away by the British Embassy, caught in a student riot, and taken to Korean brothels to name but a few of her ordeals and adventures.

At times both shocking and humorous, this story​ takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions as you follow the life of a timid young girl ,finding her voice and learning to stand up for herself in a male-orientated world of alcohol, sex and seedy nightclubs.
