Arid Dreams

- Duanwad Pimwana

( Paperback )

In thirteen stories that investigate ordinary and working-class Thailand, characters aspire for more but remain suspended in routine. They bide their time, waiting for an extraordinary event to end their stasis.

With curious wit, this collection offers revelatory insight and subtle critique, exploring class, gender, and disenchantment in a changing country.

“Earthy, spare stories that paint a bleak portrait of human shortcomings.” – Kirkus Reviews
