Abstract:

In thirteen stories that investigate ordinary and working-class Thailand, characters aspire for more but remain suspendedin routine. They bide their time, waiting for an extraordinaryeventto end their stasis. A politician's wife imagines her lifehad her husband's accident been fatal, a man on death row requests that a friend clear up a misunderstanding with a sex worker, and an elevator attendant feels himself wasting away while trapped, immobile, at his station all day. With curious wit, this collection offers revelatory insight, subtle critique, andan exploration of class, gender, and disenchantment ina changing country.
