Christopher G. Moore
has lived in and written about Thailand for more than twenty years. His new book of essays reveals what he has learned about the country, about writing, and about writing about the country.
What's the book about? Here are the titles of its four sections:
- "Perspectives on crime fiction writing"
- "Clues to solving cultural mysteries"
- "Observations from the frontlines"
- "Outside the Southeast Asia comfort zone," in which Moore leaves Thailand for odd adventures in India
The book's introduction is called "Introduction." I wrote it
, and you can read it, along with the rest of the book, in your own free copy. Just be one of the first three people to answer this skill-testing question correctly:
Japan is the Land of the Rising Sun. Korea is the Land of the Morning Calm. What is Thailand's amiable nickname?
eaders in England, Oregon and Australia knew that Thailand is nicknamed "The Land of Smiles." Copies of The Cultural Detective
will soon he headed their way. Congratulations, and enjoy the book.© Peter Rozovsky 2011
