Bangkok A-Go-Go by Jon Hail
Bangkok A-Go-Go is Thailand based fiction at its finest and authored by a legendary journalist who has worked the Southeast Asia beat for 30 years.
Jerry Norpark figured he?d died and gone to heaven when he hit Bangkok. His main ambition in life ? to get laid as often as possible ? wasn?t all that different from thousands of other GIs in Bangkok.
Getting laid was what you were supposed to do on R & R from ?Nam. But you were not supposed to go AWOL. And you were definitely not supposed to go into the jungle to join the communist guerrillas?
An Excerpt From Bangkok A-Go-Go
Pretty soon a whole crowd of confused Vietnamese were gathering around, scratching under their pith helmets, tentatively poking their AKs in my general direction. Otherwise they seemed friendly enough. None of them told me to climb down off the elephant, so I stayed put, flashing my most sincere shit-eating grin.
"Friend!" I said in every language I knew.
