If You Canít Stand the Fun, Stay Out of the Go-Go by William Peskett
And Other Perspectives on Everyday Life in Pattaya, Thailand's Extreme City
Go-go bars as a cultural asset, chicken’s feet, going to the dentist, soapy massage, tattoos, interpreting dreams, breast enhancements, and being a foreigneróthese are just some of the aspects of living in Pattaya, Thailand’s most exciting city, that come within range of this lively and revealing book of humorous essays.
Originally published in the leading fortnightly Pattaya Today, each chapter takes a light-hearted but incisive look at the quirky side of living in a city that is unusual even by Thai standards. Local characters come and go, but none receives closer attention than the author’s long-suffering wife whose innocence provides the perfect foil for her husband’s merciless wit.
For those who want to know what it’s really like to live in paradise, or for those fellow residents who wish to compare notes with an ex-pat filled with wonderment, joy and occasional confusion, If you can’t stand the fun, stay out of the go-go is the perfect Pattaya primer.
