    A writer of versatility and promise

    Muse, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 13/01/2018

    » When Jidanun Lueangpiansamut sat down in front of me, we had a purple book rested between us on a glass table. On its cover, a green silhouette of a timid lion stood out from a roaring crowd -- quite an appropriate design considering its title: Singto Nok Kok. The lion doesn't fit in or conform with the rest of the pack.

    Muse, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 05/12/2015

    » British author John Hoskin is back with another book on the history and culture of the Land of Smiles (or should we say the Land of Coup d’état?). On this occasion, he reaches back in time to the origin of the country — back when we weren’t “Thai”, and were known as the Siamese.


    Where the hipsters go
