Tuned to the rhythms of the soap operas that air on Thai television each night and written with the consuming intensity of a fever dream, this novel opens an insighful and truly compelling window into the Thai heart.

About the Author

Veeraporn Nitiprapha started writing stories when she was a teenager. Born, raised and still residing in Bangkok, she used to work as an editor on a fashion magazine and as a copywriter for advertising agencies. These days she is mother to a young man, owner of four moody cars, and a devoted cook and gardener. A full-time writer, she also runs a writing workshop. The title of her latest novel, published in Thai roughly translates as "The Twilight Years and the Memory of a Memory of a Black Cat" - it won the S.E.A. Write Award in October 2018, making her the first female writer to win the award twice. Kong Rithdee (translator) has been writing about film, literature and culture for the Bangkok Post since 1996. He has also made documentary films (The Convert, Baby Arabia, and Gaddhafi) and collaborates with the Thai Film Archive, a public organization dedicated to preserving Thailand's audiovisual heritage.
