Thailand Footprint: The People, Things, Literature, and Music of Thailand and the Region

This month’s quote by Henry Miller seems particularly timely, but then many of Henry’s quote are timeless. There is a lot of uncertainty for Thais and expats alike in the political arena. Order is trying to be made out of chaos. Truth must be sorted from all the lies. Cursed times or interesting times? More time is needed. Already there are reports of 4 deaths in the Kingdom of Thailand related to political gatherings. Hopefully, they will be the last related to the political unrest.

Without further ado:


The world is not to be put in order; the world is order, incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order. – Henry Miller

    Hey Kevin, I finished a book you recommended, “The Guards”. Ken Bruen likes thinking about drinking lots more than I do, But he writes fine dialogue when he does it. Here’s an unpublished author I found on a website where I publish some serial fiction, who you might enjoy: He’s as good as the published crime writers I read. (And I’m guessing he’ll be published one of these days.)

      Hi Carl, That’s a good assessment of Bruen. I’m a dialogue guy. I tend to think some writers take short-cuts with too much narrative. And of course they make for much quicker reads when the dialogue is snappy, like Ken’s. Thanks for the tip. ALways glad to get them and will post them anytime. Best, Kevin
