    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.
