'Behind The Smile' - the story of Lek, a bar girl in Pattaya - is unusual because it is written from the perspective of the bar girl, Lek herself. All the other books on (Thai) bar girls I have seen have been written from the standpoint of aggrieved men customers.
This book is interesting because it gives insights into the life of a bar girl, the nightlife in Pattaya and its male tourists, the sex industry and even Thai culture.
It is Owen Jones first novel; maybe there will be a sequel?
