No Way Out

Boonma was sentenced to death,
but the court commuted the sentence to life imprisonment
because of his full confession.
He didn't appeal to the Supreme Court.

Sometimes, late at night,
fellow prisoners heard him wailing,

Paperback, 136 pages
Published 2003 by Howling Books (first published 1980)

But we'll never say such things if we never get close enough to people to see the need. Books like this bring us one step closer.

One curious aside. Boonma actually had power to generate profit. The Towkay and fishing boat captain knew that, and siphoned it off for themselv

A short novel that describes the almost systematic dismantling of a Bangkok family, as a result of the poverty trap they find themselves in when the father tries to take them out of rented accommodation and into a corrugated metal-and-wood shack of their own. Korbjitti is spare with the details, though through the multiple viewpoints of the family he provides more than enough information to give a clear picture of their circumstances while at the same time leaving it to the reader to decide wher ...more
For some life is hard. For some life is terribly tricky. For some just being alive is like being sentenced to death.
