Come Sit Next to Me takes the reader on the journey of a lifetime, directly to the ancient Silk Road of Central Asia. Join the author during every stage of preparation, experience every culture shock, and gain a real sense of what isolation can feel like living in a traditional, rural Muslim community. Robert O’Quinn’s style of writing draws the reader into the narrative with the author’s descriptive prose and detailed accounts. His job was to find a way to teach English in a mountain village located next to the border of China. The winters were long and brutal, and the cultural challenges were endless, but he would ultimately learn the true essence of Kyrgyz hospitality.
