SNAKES
Wimon Sainimnuan

  
Monks, murder, money, miracles and mystifications.
Snakes galore and sleazy slitherings
intertwined with scandal, suicide and rape
in the central Thai village of Khoak Phranang
– the first of a celebrated quartet of novels
[see The Medium, Khoak Phranang and Lord of the Land ].
Central to the story are Yeesun,
murderer, boxer, snake catcher and a good man
– and Abbot Nian (Father Smoothy),
who beheads Buddha statues, kills a monk
and beds another for the greater glory of his temple.


A tale told at breakneck speed
with bite and sardonic humour.
A daring novel written in 1984 denouncing the betrayal
of Buddhism in the age of rampant consumerism.

Kindly notify me when these and other titles are available in hard copy (I can't read e-books). Khun Wimon is a brilliant writer. Many thanks.
