    Have you ever read Mark Salzman’s long-ago Iron and Silk? I found it an absorbing story, and not your typical bitter-expat screed. The book was made into a modest little movie in 1990.

    Iron and Silk! Yeah, that was me. I love that book. Thinking of the bureaucratic challenges of Korea, the first thing that leaps to mind is the scene where Teacher Mark attempts to report a rat…

    I think I have the movie on VHS in a box in the shed. (No rats in the movie, though.) You might be able to get a used DVD somewhere.
