Some new reading from publishers in Thailand:


Lang man ton mai (Behind the forest curtain) by Wirasak Chansongsaeng examines the lives of forest people, from the mountains to the sea. ISBN: 9749295242


For cooking hints from this side of the forest curtain you can’t go past Tamra kapkhao phra’ongchao churairatsiriman lae wang bangkhunphrom (Recipes of Princess Churairat at the Bangkhunphrom Palace). A very standard cookbook (like many others) but fur lovers can feast their eyes on the cover. ISBN: 9789747223835


Kila phuenmuang thai phak nua (Traditional Thai sports of the northern region). A charming and interesting guide to local relaxation, with ample illustration. Volumes for the other regions are also available. ISBN: 9749967038
