AN ELEPHANT NAMED MALIWAN
Thanorm Maha-paoraya


The eternal love triangle:
a drunkard, his son and an elephant.

When Prince Suriya, 'the number-one drunkard in Bangkok',
accidentally finds himself in a forestry concession,
he befriends its prized white elephant, the mischievous Maliwan,
who shares his taste for rice wine and loves him obsessively.
Meanwhile, the prince is believed to have died at sea.
Two years later, as he is seriously ill with malaria,
his 'widow' is about to remarry.
Will he come round in time to stop the wedding?
How is Maliwan involved in this?
And the prince's son?

This gem of a novel, written during the Second World War,
is an amazingly realistic tale of sacrifice in the name of love,
at once humorous and tragic:
a must-read for both teenagers and grownups.
