One of the areas touched upon in the first chapter of my novella A CASE OF NOIR is the rather, louche and down-at-heel world of Warsaw’s ex-pat EFL teachers.
The ‘flotsam and jetsam of life’ that make their living teaching English in Poland’s capital.
To give you a further — and very noir — taste of that bitter-sweet life here’s All About Steve, a documentary that was made a few years ago by James Torr and Jonathan Walsh.
The focus of All About Steve is a teacher known as EFL Steve who mysteriously disappeared from Warsaw after claiming he was being poisoned by a sinister group. As the mystery unravels we also get a good look at EFL life in Warsaw, and its various odds and sods.
