by Duanwad Pimwana

The first novel by a Thai woman to appear in English
outside of Thailand. A book equal parts melancholic and
exuberant, by an author with a knack for finding the gap
between who we are and who we’d like to be.

When five-year-old Kampol’s father tells him to sit on the
kerb and await his return, the confused boy does as he’s
told. He waits and waits, until eventually he realises his
father may not be coming back. In his parents’ absence,
Kampol is adopted by the community and raised on
rotation by the local adults.
