An extremely evocative collection of stories set in contemporary Thailand by an award-winning author. Trirat Petchsingh’s masterfully-crafted stories are quirky, interesting, and always fun to read. His language is often beautiful and powerful. He has a first-rate ability to keep his readers in suspense and then surprise them with unexpected endings. There are intriguing stories about family relationships, lovers and cads, and other ordinary mortals. They deal with rites of passage, life’s mysteries and epiphanies, and sometimes just ordinary experiences, but always with an intriguing twist. His heroes, while not all entirely loveable, are all believable and worthy of our sympathy. For example, there is a miner who seeks his fortune in the hills of the north, a news reporter who mixes a little romance with his work, and an army conscript who becomes involved in momentous events. In this collection of nineteen stories, Trirat Petchsingh has revealed an insight into the Thai milieu that no other author has attempted.
