Certain that she wants to spend the rest of her life in Bangkok, Janet Brown moves to Thailand, only to find bombs and civil unrest in the Land of Smiles. She sets off to find her new home in Asia, looking in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Penang with mixed results.
Janet Brown is a former bookseller who lives in Seattle and travels to Asia whenever she can. Born in Manhattan and brought up in Alaska, she tends to be attracted to extremes. She hates bad coffee, bedbugs, and writing her own marketing material.

Editorial Reviews

"Janet Brown's poignant travelogue is less a testament to the wunderlust many of us experience at some point in our lives, if we're lucky, than it is the gnawing itinerancy many of us experience in our very souls. Certainly, Ms. Brown revels in the exoticism of her varying Far Eastern homes, and yet, whereas some people who feel that they belong to one place but live in another find themselves content in neither, Ms. Brown ultimately accommodates a peace within herself from which we can all learn. It is this simple yet elusive beauty, the everyday, universal marvels, that she so eloquently expresses and makes Almost Home so worthwhile."—-Peter Charles Melman, author of Landsman
