An ordinary story

De
72 pages

Bangkok in the late 70s.

A tenanted house between jungle and modern civilisation.

The girl next door is struck down by cancer and goes for Thai cures.

Alternately self-righteous, smug, kindly and selfish,

the male narrator is caught between the temptation to help

and the need to look after number one.

This not so ordinary story, whose narrative technique

is akin to Albert Camus'sThe Fall, has an altogether different import:

the girl's cancer is Thai society's, caught between tradition

and modernity and its resultant dehumanisation.
