Bangkok Found: Reflection On The City

By Alex Kerr

Evocative and incisive, Bangkok Found looks deep within traditional culture to discover how Bangkok is like no other contemporary city. It's the book you read after you've seen the temples and enjoyed the nightlife and then start to wonder where the mysterious appeal of Bangkok really lies. With wit and a wealth of anecdotes from Kerr's thirty years experience in Thailand, Bangkok Found, sequel to his award-winning Lost Japan, takes you on a journey to the essential and the quirky, the factual and the mythical. In this series of meditations on the city, old culture meets global fusion in the crossroads that is Bangkok.

"Bangkok Found is a very unbookish book. The author never regales us with book learning. He seems to get most of his information by asking people rather than mugging up. His prose style is so effortless that consuming this book is more like having someone talk to you rather than reading printed pages. The joy of the book is that Alex Kerr arrived in Bangkok as a seeker, and now takes us along for a replay of the ride. At the end he admits Bangkok is too elusive to truly be 'found'. But he has written probably the best single 'guide' for a visitor to Bangkok, who wants to be provoked into looking at the city as it is, not as it is often portrayed."Chris Baker, Bangkok Post, 28 June 2010
