A Woman of Bangkok by Jack Reynolds.
Found this on sale in Canterbury Tales Bookshop in Pattaya while staying there and found it an awesome read, although written in 1956 is still fresh and a very well written and many people I talked to had similar stories about the relationship with Thai Girls.
Its great its back in print and a must for the Thailand traveler.

Am currently reading The Marriage Plot, the latest book by Jeffrey Eugenides. It's a very good read, and one that I think would be good to take on a trip - when it is available in paperback, that is!

Hey Danlo, Actually it is a very old book. I have tried hard to find it but fail. Please help me to find it.

Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates and the somewhat-sequel Villa Incognito. Fiction by Tom Robbins. They don't take place entirely in Bangkok, but these books capture the soul of the city in a way nothing else I've read does and helps explain why folks like me love Thailand so much. Cheers.

The white tiger is a very good book to read
It gives you a look inside the mind of a Indian boy from a rural village in "the Darkness"

A Town Like Alice (Nevil Shute) is a super-readable classic that starts in Malaysia during WW2 and ends in the Australian outback.
