That’s 22 stories for not much more than the price of one of the collections.The two collections are Mango and Sticky Rice and Mist on the Jungle. Most of the stories are set in Thailand or have a Thai or Asian connection.They feature a fascinating collection of characters: a photographer hired to witness a murder- a colour-blind sperm donor- a ghost who misses his friends- a Canadian in Pattaya who pretends he’s from Latvia- a woman sure her children’s will be the last human generation- a lascivious businessman who prefers lady-boys to ladies- a depressed captain who threatens to sink his own ferry- a woman who eats more than food- and a Thai widow finding her late husband’s roots in Crete.Often amusing, sometimes comical and occasionally sad, these tales are always touching. William Peskett writes with a light touch and brings a sensitive and sympathetic eye to bear on a wide variety of characters and an unusual mixture of relationships. They have much to reveal about how life is lived by locals and by foreigners resident in this fascinating part of the world.
