Just to let the world know that Under a demented sky, my translation of Saneh Sangsuk’s latest novel, is now available online at thaifiction.com and in a few hours will be at immateriel.fr as well.
The baby weighs 108 pages all told and the first seven pages of text are free to read on the site (click Preview Reading). Otherwise, downloading the (printable) PDF version is only 150 baht away. If any problem , send a note to barang @ mail.com.
The cover picture I shamelessly borrowed from the printed Thai version. I hope permission to use it will be granted by its publishing house, Samanchon Books. Won’t you, Khun Vieng?
My thanks go to my long-suffering editor GB and to novelist Christopher New for assiduously polishing my English and of course to the author himself for taking the time to elucidate the most recondite or obscene formulations he uses.
