    A Story Set in Thailand

    Outdoor Adventures is a story for children full of riddles and life lessons every child should be exposed to.

    Follow the Lesters as they travel from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Province in Thailand where they have a series of wonderful and educational adventures. Alice and Ethan, the family’s two young children, learn about the heroes buried at the War Cemetery, go rafting on the River Kwai, explore the Bridge on the River Kwai, and then go climbing at Erawan National Park and cool off in its amazing waterfall.

    But the adventures don’t stop here as the Lesters continue their trip up the river in a canoe, build a huge bonfire at the tree hut camp, and go trekking the next day in the wild jungle. Even more excitement awaits them during their elephant ride which is followed by a slow train ride through the countryside.

    Ce roman présente une galerie de personnages truculents et attachants dans les situations les plus typiques des étrangers venus vivre ou s’égayer dans le Pays du sourire. L’auteur ironise sur les maladroites tentatives d’adaptation à la vie orientale, variété thaïlandaise, d’Occidentaux bons vivants, traînant parfois sur leur dos un vieil adolescent pris du mal de vivre.

    Il s’agit de la traduction et adaptation de Bangkok Knights de Collin Piprell, écrivain canadien vivant en Thaïlande. Ce livre à succès a paru originellement en 1989 sous forme de nouvelles et a été réédité par la suite.

    Le livre est écrit dans une prose délicieusement ironique et quoique certaines situations soient légèrement exagérées pour l’effet comique, l’ensemble est résolument réaliste. La critique des comportements est présente sans nuire au ton léger. Le résultat est un livre immensément drôle, parfois émouvant et toujours instructif.

  • Thailand Changes

    $4.99$13.99 Jaggs, Peter

    $4.99$13.99

    This book takes an offbeat and humorous look at how tourism has changed radically in Thailand over the past thirty-five years, seen through the eyes of two red-blooded young men who made their first trips to the country over three decades apart.
    Peter Jaggs provides an unparalleled insight into the night-streets, tourist resorts and rural villages of both modern day and bygone Thailand and goes some way to explaining why many men become so hooked on the country after just one short visit, it changes their lives forever.
    Thailand Changes is at the same time both hilarious and sobering. The writing is blunt and honest and about as politically correct as a sexist Klansman on a baby seal hunt wearing an ocelot fur coat, so reader discretion is advised.

    How can you rescue a Thai girl from a brothel?
    Jade has an idea to save her sister, Mayya. “Mr Lee, he clever man. You must make him offer…” and she used the drippings in my saucer to draw a map of ‘Mike-v-Lee’.
    First, a square: “This you,” she said. Then, a second square… about six inches away. “You be useful – if work for Mr Lee, he no hurt you.”
    I had no argument with ‘not getting hurt’. “You know how he operates?”
    “You need fence to keep you safe,” and she added a line of strokes between the two squares. “If Lee see fence, he not attack you,” Jade explained. “We give him fence to think about…”
    When the Picasso scam on Gran Canaria went pear-shaped, we sent the Midnight painting to Lee Ho Chan in Bangkok. But our favourite Chinese merchant was involved in the Bangkok Sunrise plot to overthrow the government and before he’d let us take Mayya home, he wanted me to collect a secret letter from his brother in Chiang Mai.
    So we chased our tails from Bangkok to Koh Samui and on to Chiang Mai. But when my contact was murdered in a ride-by shooting, I lost my link to Lee’s brother – and unless we had that letter, we had no hope of saving Mayya… or the government of Thailand.
    But while all this was happening, where was Corinne Bruckmann?

    $12.99

    A tale based on true events.

    The Bangkok Cowboys is a gritty, straight talking tale based on true events with dashes of unique northern humour in parts, bringing to life the astonishing journey of two working class men told by the writer in their own words, how they struggled working the streets in the rag trade throughout the North East of England. After them being held down by higher forces, they eventually get the break in the used-clothing industry using their wits and determination and become successful exporters into Eastern Europe.

    Striking up a friendship with their new Eastern European buyers, they soon realise that things are not all that they seem, and they are foolishly drawn into the paranoid world of trafficking cocaine out of England. Being overwhelmed by their new found wealth takes them on a path to the hedonistic world of Thailand’s red light districts, believing Thailand was the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; their minds become blurred from the true reality of life.

    They then team up with an ex-Liverpool bouncer living in Bangkok, for their most daring plan of the whole operation, maybe thinking they were untouchable or they walked on water, they entered the corrupt world of Thailand. As always, in Thailand, money is number one to the Thais; this causing a dramatic showdown with the corrupt Thai police for an ending packed with suspense and betrayal showing Thailand’s corruption at its best.

    (sequel to Daughter of the Snake)

    What’s it like to own a brothel? Not just any old come-and-screw-me-for-a-dollar bonking-barracks – but a genuine top-shelf rattle-alley, right in the heart of Bangkok’s Red Light district.
    Who thought of it? Was it Brad? Was it Zakrov? Was it me? And how did it happen? Trust me, friends, it was never on my wish-list. But just as in the nursery rhyme, Tiger Blue fell off the wall and landed at my feet. And when it broke, it caused a whole stack of trouble.
    But let’s go back to the beginning… and that tear-jerking text message from Kodi…
    *****
    I so sad – I love you, Mr Billy… Shortly after midnight on that Monday morning, Kodi’s message buzzed my cell phone. I was on the ‘goodbye-Thailand’ side of Don Muang airport, waiting for the KLM to Schiphol. Kodi was history. I was going back to Victoria. (OK, she’s married, but her husband doesn’t seem to bother.) Life was heading back to normal. And then I read that irritating: I so sad – I love you, Mr Billy text message.
    Jesus! Had she changed her mind already? Two nights ago, I’d pitched my proposal. I’d agreed to most of her demands – and Selena should not have been a problem. But after that red-haired witch had filled her head with stories of sun-kissed beaches and endless jugs of mango juice, Kodi decided that Australia would be a lot more exciting than Thailand.
    And now this bloody I So Sad… It was total Bollocks with a capital B. If she’d told me sooner, I could have changed my going-home date, booked a morning with a monk and got on with the serious batting practice after lunch.
    But then I had my Glory Hallelujah moment!
    Think about it, Billy: an I so Sad… is like an I’m Available… So if she’s putting you back in the game, why not take another shot? From this, a flash of old-fashioned common sense: If you want her, book another flight… Get back and stake your claim…
