Bangkok Wakes to Rain | Pitchaya Sudbanthad

From the 19th century to a future derelict and doomed Bangkok, this is a story of lost men and women. The strands that connect them are centered around a house. Lovely, elegiac, love song for a city.

Magical book from the #tob2020 longlist. I‘ve never read a book from Thailand before but this gave such a vivid, sensory impression of Bangkok I felt like I was living and breathing it so much. Intricate plotting and characterisation and such fantastic description, so many different aspects of life in Bangkok, if you like dense, evocative, melancholy cities this is for you.

Suet624 I'm trying to read a bunch of the TOB list but time and money determine what I can get to. Thanks for letting me know this is one to seek out. 3d
Theaelizabet The NYT just named this book to its 2019 Notable Book list. It really sounds fascinating. 3d

1st edition of a great book with a wonderful cover! Picked it up in Bangkok in 2004ish - a friend of a friend of a co-worker (or something) knew the authors and invited us to the release party at Jim Thompson's house after hours. We were allowed to wander around the house and gardens without an official tour guide. Very posh. One of the few times in life I have felt oh so glamorous!

Ddzmini It‘s boric acid 😝 but you have to be diligent when your doing otherwise like everything else it won‘t work (so hard work and consistency is key) 4mo
gradcat Ugh! You know, I think one of my landlords (when I lived in Nashville) said to use boric acid...but I can‘t remember if I did. Something worked though, else I wouldn‘t have been able to stand living there! 😂🙃 4mo

This was entertaining! I think the Jo Nesbø atmosphere is not quite there yet since this is one of his early books but it's close. Also why put an Ikea knife on the cover if it clearly doesn't make an appearance in the book? The description of knifes in this book are very detailed so the person who made the cover could find all the needed info for the right kind of knife in the book if they wanted. 🤔

Cool interlocking stories set in, around, or about Bangkok. Some set in the future, some in the past. Really cool.
