In two weeks, I’m off to Thailand for a holiday (Bangkok and Koh Samui). It’s a beautiful place which I find fascinating because it has a liberal culture and a fantastically modern capital, and yet it’s still very traditional in many ways!
Yet, despite visiting three times previously I have oddly never read a novel set there, or written by a Thai author – something that I would like to change.
I quite fancy one novel that’s a little bit epic that I can read on the beach and maybe something shorter. I’d like to learn something but not feel lectured.
Can anyone recommend anything?
