Most are set in Thailand and provide insights into the lives of the varied populations of that exotic land- others could have happened anywhere. But what marks them out is the diversity of the storylines, the quality of the writing, and engagement with interesting characters who have something to say.About the Author:William Peskett was educated in Belfast and at Cambridge University, where he read natural sciences.

He has worked in teaching, journalism, marketing, design management and corporate relations. He now lives and writes in Pattaya, Thailand. Peskett has published two volumes of poems, The Nightowls Dissection and Survivors, the first of which won an Eric Gregory Award. These were followed by three novels, two collections of short stories, verse, and a volume of essays about ex-pat life in his adopted country.
