About This Book

A collection of short stories revealing the lives of a wide cross-section of Thai society - the poor peasant who goes job-hunting in the city, only to end up yet another victim of urban decay; the middle-class corporate executive whose lack of social responsibility renders him unable to instil moral values in his own child; the prominent socialite who will do anything to maintain her image and social position. Characters and situations come across all the more powerfully for their familiarity. These tales reflect the distorted values in today's Thailand, where economic progress has resulted in lost traditions, changing social structure, materialism, emotional isolation and shifting ideals.
