The Politician and Other Stories

The Politician and Other Stories includes 17 short stories by contemporary Thai writer Khamsing Srinawk. Khamsing’s characters are rich and variegated, sparkling with individuality. These entertaining stories form a window through which to glimpse the unpretentious yet heroic lives of rural Thai villagers in the second half of the 20th century.
