Overview

Sarai wasn't like the other go-go dancers. She knew that a few thousand pounds a year would be enough to take care of her whole family, but Sarai wasn't dancing just to send money home every month. She had discovered that selling tickets for the illegal Thai Lottery was more dangerous than she could ever have imagined, and now she owed a great deal of money.

Thai Lottery is the story of the lengths a girl will go to when a debt becomes a matter of life and death, and of the westerners who have bought their own tickets to a more personal lottery. They come to Thailand looking for something that's missing from their lives. Some may be lucky but for a few the result will be utter despair.

Thai Lottery and twelve other short stories are contained in this intriguing debut work. An insightful must read, whether you're a seasoned traveler to Thailand or embarking on your first trip to the Land of Smiles.

    On the face of it a seedy subject but this is engaging, funny and poignant. Lots of really good stuff on human relationships plus a handy guide for anyone wanting to do a tour of the Thai bar scene. The book was recommended to me by a female friend so while there is plenty of content for the male reader it seems to appeal to women too. Maybe they are wondering what their husbands get up to in Thailand.
