From boxers, business tycoons, bargirls and body-snatchers to street vendors, slum-dwellers, socialites and singers, Bangkok People takes the reader into the daily lives of city denizens, both Thai and expat, and from the filthy rich to the just plain filthy. Penned by one of Thailand's best-known expat writers, this fascinating, funny, sometimes serious, and occasionally odd collection plunges right into the heart of the myriad masses who make this mad metropolis tick. The profiles, mostly written for the Manager Magazine, before the 1997 Asian Economic Crisis of which the magazine ended up a victim, was from the time of Bangkok booming. Will it ever get quite up to those good-time heights again? Dig in and enjoy these vignettes of the real people who populated this wonderful city.
