**Winner of The Guardian London's Self-published Book of the Month Award** "What sort of idiot takes a job after a five minute phone interview, in a country he knows nothing much about and on the other side of the world, in a school he's never heard of?" Newbie is on the run. From England. From the past. From memories of his dead girlfriend, Laura. Indonesia is as good a place as any to reinvent himself-cheap beer, exotic landscapes, a beautiful Indonesian girlfriend, and a bunch of misfit mate all masquerading as English teachers. Jalan Jalan. "Just walking. Out for a stroll." It's a local phrase that sums up Newbie's quest for emotional detachment, to block out the pain of the past. But Laura won't leave him alone-her ghost haunts him, her voice fills his head, her gaze follows him everywhere. It will take a breakdown and an exorcism at the hands of an Indonesian shaman to make Newbie realize that the events of the past might not always be what they seem
