Smiley  (reader2009) | 5 comments Would someone please tell me if there is any English translation of the Thai novel, 'Mae bia' by Wanich Jarungkitanan? Literally speaking, the novel title is translated as 'the hood of a snake', but 'The Snake Lady', I think, is a bit more perfect (used in a Malaysian movie title). I look forward to finding such a book for my American friend, thank you.

"Mae Bia = แม่เบี้ย" The writer want to mean The hood of Cobra.

GD I don't think that an English translation has been published in book form, but there's a French guy (!) who's translated it into English, and you can the e-book version here:

Hope this helps.
