Arrival of Dawn by Pensri Kiengsiri

A Thai novel of family conflict and politics

National Book Prize Runner Up

"Arrival of Dawn" vividly describes three generations in a Thai-Chinese family living in Bangkok as they interact with each other over the course of twenty years. Pressured by her mother, the narrator takes on the role of family caretaker, and later in life realizes that her sacrifices, instead of helping, have bought harm to herself and others. In a distinctly Buddhist way, she gradually reaches serenity and understanding. - Frances Siranovic, Writer, Editor

Pensri Kiengsiri's "Arrival of Dawn" gives a glimpse into the domestic lives of contemporary Thai Families, who despite their modernism still tend to adhere to customs of old where matters of family and male dominance are concerned. It's a story of self sacrifice, love and the ultimate happiness derived from a solid familial nucleus and the knowing of one's own heart. I found the story to be highly enlightening thanks to its in-depth portrayal of the dynamics of Thai life, it gave me an understanding I would not have otherwise had access to. It is a compulsory read read for anyone seeking closer familiarity with the Thai people's everyday way of life. Ines Ehrkich, Writer, Editor, Translator
