Book Recommendation | Letters from Thailand: A Novel by Botan
Letters from Thailand is the story of Tan Suang U, a young man who leaves China to make his fortune in Thailand at the close of World War II, and ends up marrying, raising a family, and operating a successful business. The novel unfolds through his letters to his beloved mother in China. In his daily life in Bangkok’s bustling Chinatown, larger and deeper themes emerge: his determination to succeed at business in this new culture, his hopes for his family, his resentment at how easily his children embrace urban Thai culture at the expense of the Chinese heritage which he holds dear, his inability to understand or adopt Thai ways, and his growing alienation from a society that is changing too fast for him.
