Description

Thai Vignettes - Phuket and Beyond

by Steve Rosse

Phuket and Beyond Poignant, ironic, heartbreakingly sad, savagely funny.

Brims with a host of keenly-observed characters cast adrift on Phuket's sunny shores and beyond.

About The Author:

In 1988 Steve Rosse took a break from a career in the New York City film and television industry for a three-month holiday on Phuket, an island off the Western coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea.

He decided he liked Phuket more than he liked New York, and without any idea of what he'd do for a living, he took up residence on the island. He supported himself, and eventually his wife and children, for most of the next decade as a freelance journalist and columnist. His column, "The Rock", apeared in The Nation, Thailand's Independent Newspaper, every Sunday for five years. The stories in this book first appeared in publications around the Pacific Rim, from Honolulu to Christchurch.

In 1997 he quit writing and moved to Iowa for the surfing.

Reviews:

“Every Sunday morning, Steve Rosse’s “The Rock” column is the first thing I turn to in The Nation. His new Thai Vignettes, Short Stories from a Big Island offers the cream of his weekly tales: poignant, ironic, heartbreakingly sad, savagely funny. Steve Rosse is the conscience of Phuket, and its Jonathan Swift too.”

“Rosse is a fine writer. He brings to these stories the sharp perceptions, amused tolerance and, sometimes, moral indignation of a long-time resident with a real affection for the place and people.” Collin Piprell, author of Too Many Women and Kicking Dogs
