Bangkok Babylon
By

Rating
In the colorful tradition of Orwell and Hemingway, Maugham and Theroux, Jerry Hopkins recalls his first decade as a Bangkok expatriate by profiling twenty-five of the city's most unforgettable characters. Among them are the man thought to be the model for Colonel Kurtz in "Apocalypse Now", an advertising executive who photographs Thai bargirls for "Playboy", an Oscar-winning screenwriter who moved there to die, a Catholic priest who has lived and worked in the Bangkok slums for 35 years, a circus dwarf turned computer programmer turned restaurateur...All of them 'escaped' to Thailand to re-invent themselves and live out their fantasies in one of the world's most notorious cities.
