This book of short stories set in Thailand has been on my shelves since 2012, and I finally got to it for my 2019 Asian reading project. These are slice of life stories and a novella about cockfighting. They remind me a lot of the book of short stories set in Hawaii I read last year, where the locals are the focus.

The author was born in Chicago and raised in Thailand, so these stories are not translations but still feel like an inside perspective.
