Book release: Daughter of Isaan (22 Jun 2008 21:34)
This is the story of a poor girl from Isaan, a love story complicated by cultural confusion, mistrust, corruption -- and even treason. Our girl takes on the world with unlimited ambition and naivety born of her simple roots. It is a rare insider account of Thailand's bar scene, written with understanding and local knowledge. With a central character who is at once innocent and urbane, yet at the same time both vulnerable and heroic, this is one bar where life goes on and stories unfold.
