Dr. Iain Corness is medical practitioner, racing car driver, restaurateur, photographer, freelance journalist and fi rst rate raconteur. The Uk born ex-pat, who fell in love with Thailand, both it's people and way of life, while on a holiday, and fi nally managed to move there permanently 20 years later. As a settled `farang' (the Thai term for a westerner) he enjoys a unique perspective on Thai life and all its eccentricities; looking in from the outside while also getting to see the things most foreigners don't. His stories and anecdotes are full of the joys of life, and celebrate this exotic and exciting land in all its glory with painfully funny observations. From a date with a fortune teller to tales of a reincarnated squid, Corness revels in the chaos and charm of `the only country where you can be run over by a shop.' This is a book to be enjoyed by anyone interested in Asian culture.
