Very Thai

A book about the real Thailand behind the tourist clichees. It was selected as one of the "3 best books of 2005" by Asia Expert Asia Donald Richie in the Japan Times. Published by River Books.

"This pioneering insight into contemporary Thai folk culture delves beyond the traditional Thai icons to reveal the casual, everyday expressions of Thainess that so delight and puzzle. From floral truck bolts and taxi altars to buffalo cart furniture and drinks in a bag, the same exquisite care, craft and improvisation resounds through home and street, bar and wardrobe."
