Carol Hollinger was a housewife, mother, and teacher, and Mai Pen Rai Means Never Mind is her humorous, often hilarious account of her experience in all those roles during her stay in Thailand, where her husband was stationed in the US Foreign Service. A brilliant observer of customs, manners, and cultural differences, she writes frankly and unsparingly of herself and her fellow Americans, and relates both the fun and frustration of communicating with the Thai people - without being coy or condescending. Although written over 30 years ago, Mai Pen Rai Means Never Mind is as entertaining now as it was when first published, and remains equally relevant - with its honest and lively anecdotes of this exotic country and its people, and the difficulties and delights foreigners have in adjusting to life in a completely new environment.
