Thai Vignettes by Steve Rosse
Phuket and Beyond
A collection of short stories by Phuket's best known expat author, Steve Rosse. These stories were first published in the Phuket Magazine, The Nation, Thailand Tattler and the Phuket Gazette.
"Steve Rosse has taken one small part of Thailand - Phuket and its environs - and made it his own. What he tells us about its current life styles is not always, or even often, what tourism boosters would like to hear; but his stories have the rare ring of truth and some of them have the added bonus of being very funny." William Warren, author of Jim Thompson, the Unsolved Mystery
"Every Sunday morning, Steve Rosse's "The Rock" column is the first thing I turn to in The Nation. His new Thai Vignettes, Phuket and Beyond offers the cream of his weekly tales: poignant, ironic, heartbreakingly sad, savagely funny. Steve Rosse is the conscience of Phuket, and its Jonathan Swift too." James Eckardt, author of Waylaid by the Bimbos, Boat People and Swimming with the Sharks
"Rosse is a fine writer. He brings to these stories the sharp perceptions, amused tolerance and, sometimes, moral indignation of a long-time resident with a real affection for the place and people." Collin Piprell, author of Too Many Women and Kicking Dogs
"Brims with a host of keenly-observed characters cast adrift on Phuket's sunny shores." Steve Van Beek, author of The Chao Phya, River in Transition
