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

With the year of 2557, 2014 or the Year of the Horse fast approaching I list my favorite novels of fiction, which I read in the past 12 months. This list was composed in true Thailand style democratic fashion. I nominated myself to make these decisions. I then appointed myself to a committee of one because I know what is best for you, the common reader out there. I also handle the appeals process. Don’t think of me as an elite. Think of me as your democratically elected leader, without the hassle or cost of an election. Herewith find Thailand Footprint’s Fiction Favorites for 2013. Any of these books would make a fine holiday present for yourself or any fiction fan.

    Thanks, Carl All these are good. If you’ve never read any Hallinan I’d also include his Queen of Patpong, which I read about three years ago now, Moore and Hallinan will both have new novels coming out in early 2014 also.

    I loved Killed at the Whim of a Hat and its sequel Granddad There’s a Head on the Beach too. I wish CC would reconsider his no more writing decision.

      Thanks, Janet. I want to read the sequel. Colin loves his cartooning, I know that. Check out his web site if you haven’t recently. He’s even got flotsam and jetsam in the south for sale that probably originated in Bangkok. Things like flip flop mobiles. Check out this page of his beautiful Mum: because, she is beautiful and she makes me think of my dear departed Mom.
