Ever dreamed of finding a tree that grows leaves of unlimited money? The dream comes true for two Bangkok garbage men when they come across a "money tree"--a tree used for collecting donations for a temple--only the banknotes pulled from its branches replenish themselves. Kob and Beer immediately start spending this ceaseless supply of occult cash, until finding themselves in grave danger when the demonic owner of the tree comes looking for it. Kob recounts these supernatural events to Andee, an American expat English teacher who finds himself sitting next to him in Thailand's most notorious jail, the "Bangkok Hilton." The incredible story told by Kob soon becomes all too real as the narrative ceases to be a mere tale and becomes a nightmarish part of Andee's life as he's tasked to save the money tree from the demon without getting killed in the process.

About the Author

Andrew J. West, originally from Sydney where he studied writing at University of Western Sydney, moved to Bangkok 15 years ago and soon established himself as an art critic for several publications, notably Bangkok Post, culminating in the authoring of Destiny to Imagination: Prateep Kochabua (2013) and Thai Neotraditional Art (2015), as well as hanging his solo art exhibition, Three Worlds, at the prestigious Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) in 2014. Andrew is fascinated by Thai culture, especially its mythological and folkloric underpinnings, which provides much of the cultural material about which he writes fiction, as well as being a history buff. He lives with his Thai wife and son and when not writing enjoys Bangkok’s art scene, its street food, and listening to the blues.

Andrew J. West is author of the Time Beings trilogy (2017-18) and has written extensively for Bangkok Post as well as authoring Thai Neotraditional Art (2015) and Destiny to Imagination: Prateep Kochabua (2013).
