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.
