Sexy Thai Bar Girls And Me: Sex Adventures In Asia

By Jonathan Finch.

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange, Pattaya.

Sexy Thai Bar Girls / Sex Adventures / Hookers / ladyboys / Bars / A Go Gos / Pattaya Freelancers / Walking Street / L. K. Metro / massage Parlours / Discos / And More (From An Author Who Has Been Living In Pattaya For Ten Years And Still Thinks He’s Compos Mentis!)

Reviewers have claimed that Finch writes with “apparent lightness and liquidity” and that he is “a true navigator”, gifting his readers with a “very well written memoir / travel book”.

“Sexy Thai Bar Girls And Me / Sex Adventures In Asia”, an updated version of “Collected Selected Words”, includes everything from before and a bit more from after.

ladyboys fly in, bedevilled punters appear to lament hoodwinkery, James Bond takes that flight back to England on a stretcher, and the opening and closing fiascos are narrated by a soak (in a far worse state than the first) who gives lots of inside information about Pattaya bars, a go gos, ladyboys and more. There is also a Lonely Planet Guide of sorts which chronicles all the best hot night-spots in Pattaya. Beautiful Thai ladies jump out at you and if you survive the first, few pages you will be hooked.

Like the Pattaya punter who “loses” his air-ticket home, like the long-stay expat who extends his retirement-visa beyond his death-certificate, you won’t be going back in a hurry, and when you’ve finished the “roller-coaster ride” (aka this book), you’ll knock back a couple of Red Bulls and hit the town!

Deborah Harry: The Biography

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange, Pattaya.

Written with Deborah Harry's cooperation, this biography has been fully revised and updated to include new studio and live albums, numerous world tours, and Blondie's induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

"I was hugely influenced by Debbie Harry. . . . I thought she was the coolest chick in the universe." Madonna

"For me, you are the most legendary woman in rock." - Lady Gaga to Deborah Harry

The Blondie frontwoman has remained a lasting icon of cool, synonymous with New York City attitude and the intersecting worlds of punk, rock, rap, art, film, and fashion.

This book celebrates the life of the original rock goddess as boldly as she's lived it. 

With three exclusive interviews with Deborah, as well as contributions from her friends, fans, and contemporaries, this book is as close to official as it gets, and is a tribute to a truly unconventional pop star who is still influencing a new generation of female pop icons.

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange, Pattaya.

A body is found at an ATM the apparent victim of heart attack.

Then two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver.

The girls confess to the crime showing no remorse whatsoever.

Two open and shut cases, at first these two incidents seem to have nothing in common, but as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver he begins to unravel a plot much more involved complicated than he initially suspected.

The two cases become one and lead to conspiracy that stretches to encompass a world larger than the borders of Sweden.

The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange, Pattaya.

Ken Follett is known worldwide as the master of split-second suspense, but his most beloved and bestselling book tells the magnificent tale of a twelfth-century monk driven to do the seemingly impossible: build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has ever known.

Everything readers expect from Follett is here: intrigue, fast-paced action, and passionate romance. But what makes The Pillars of the Earth extraordinary is the time the twelfth century; the place feudal England; and the subject the building of a glorious cathedral.

Follett has re-created the crude, flamboyant England of the Middle Ages in every detail.

The vast forests, the walled towns, the castles, and the monasteries become a familiar landscape. Against this richly imagined and intricately interwoven backdrop, filled with the ravages of war and the rhythms of daily life, the master storyteller draws the reader irresistibly into the intertwined lives of his characters into their dreams, their labors, and their loves: Tom, the master builder; Aliena, the ravishingly beautiful noblewoman; Philip, the prior of Kingsbridge; Jack, the artist in stone; and Ellen, the woman of the forest who casts a terrifying curse. From humble stonemason to imperious monarch, each character is brought vividly to life.

The building of the cathedral, with the almost eerie artistry of the unschooled stonemasons, is the center of the drama.

Around the site of the construction, Follett weaves a story of betrayal, revenge, and love, which begins with the public hanging of an innocent man and ends with the humiliation of a king.

"At once a sensual and endearing love story and an epic that shines with the fierce spirit of a passionate age, The Pillars of the Earth is without a doubt Ken Follett's masterpiece."

The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding.

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange, Pattaya.

Now a major motion picture, directed by Oliver Stone and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Edward Snowden was a 29-year-old computer genius working for the National Security Agency when he shocked the world by exposing the near-universal mass surveillance programs of the United States government.

His whistleblowing has shaken the leaders of nations worldwide, and generated a passionate public debate on the dangers of global monitoring and the threat to individual privacy.
 
In a tour de force of investigative journalism that reads like a spy novel, award-winning reporter Luke Harding tells Snowden’s astonishing story, from the day he left his glamorous girlfriend in Honolulu carrying a hard drive full of Secrets, to the weeks of his secret-spilling in Hong Kong, to his battle for asylum and his exile in Moscow.

For the first time, Harding brings together the many sources and strands of the story, touching on everything from concerns about domestic spying to the complicity of the tech sector, while also placing us in the room with Edward Snowden himself. The result is a gripping insider narrative and a necessary and timely account of what is at stake for all of us in the new digital age.

Promised Land: A Northern Love Story by Anthony Clavane

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange, Pattaya.

Anthony Clavane loves Leeds - certainly the football club, but also the city, and the tribes that make it. Now that he is an exile in the South, his frequent pilgrimages to the stadium speak for themselves. But he no less loves the rarely-glimpsed back-streets of his youth; and even has a feel for the long-gone slums where his ancestors once settled. Leeds is his promised land; idealised and unreachable, yet still it defines him. 

This is a book about football. It's about unconditional love for a club, even when it doesn't always seem to love you back. But it is also a book about much more than that.

Honorary Consul Pattaya by Barry Kenyon.

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya

Barry Kenyon worked as the British Honorary Consul in Pattaya for 14 years up to 2010.  

In that time, he met all types of British subjects and dealt with all types of problems that British subjects could get themselves into!  There would be very few holders of a British passport who do not know Barry Kenyon, and almost all wax lyrical in their praise of the man.

The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America by Bill Bryson

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya.

‘I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to’

And, as soon as Bill Bryson was old enough, he left. Des Moines couldn’t hold him, but it did lure him back.

After ten years in England, he returned to the land of his youth, and drove almost 14,000 miles in search of a mythical small town called Amalgam, the kind of trim and sunny place where the films of his youth were set. Instead, his search led him to Anywhere, USA; a lookalike strip of gas stations, motels and hamburger outlets populated by lookalike people with a penchant for synthetic fibres.

He discovered a continent that was doubly lost; lost to itself because blighted by greed, pollution, mobile homes and television; lost to him because he had become a stranger in his own land.

Bryson’s acclaimed first success, The Lost Continent is a classic of travel literature, hilariously, stomach achingly, funny, yet tinged with heartache and the book that first staked Bill Bryson’s claim as the most beloved writer of his generation.

A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer.

@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya.

A harrowing, yet inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer.

Dave Pelzer was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother, a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games, games that left one of her three sons nearly dead.

She no longer considered Dave a son, but a slave; no longer a boy, but an 'it'.

His bed was an old army cot in the basement, his clothes were torn and smelly, and when he was allowed the luxury of food it was scraps from the dog's bowl.

The outside world knew nothing of the nightmare played out behind closed doors.

But throughout Dave kept alive dreams of finding a family to love him.

This book covers the early years of his life and is an affecting and inspirational book of the horrors of child abuse and the steadfast determination of one child to survive.

Murder so Cold by Patricia Springer.

 In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya

On Wednesday, September 28, 1994, in Portage, Michigan, seven-year-old Candace Smith's world crumbled when her father, Russ, told her that mommy had run away with another man.

But he wouldn't say why the bathroom upstairs was a wreck, with blood in the sink.

Or what was in the barrel loaded into the back of his pickup as he drove Candace to her grandparents' house miles out of state. Married for eight years, the Smiths seemed the perfect couple.

Neighbours couldn't believe that doting mom Khris would ever have abandoned her daughter.

After her disappearance, Russ Smith completely remodelled the upstairs bathroom.

He also dramatically changed his lifestyle, sporting flashy clothes and dating strippers. Worse, his relationship with Candace was discovered to be dark and disturbing, culminating with the courts taking custody of the child.

Through it all, Khris Smith remained among the missing, and the case ground to a halt. Four years passed before the Smith file was reopened, by an elite squad of "cold case" investigators.

Painstaking interviews of those closest to the Smiths brought a crucial statement to light, and Russ Smith, now engaged and living happily in Florida, was picked up by the detectives.

On an eight hour drive back to Michigan, he told a story a story of narcissism, rage, and murder so cold...

Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya.
The story of three generations in twentieth-century China that blends the intimacy of memoir and the panoramic sweep of eyewitness history, a bestselling classic in thirty languages with more than ten million copies sold around the world, now with a new introduction from the author.

An engrossing record of Mao’s impact on China, an unusual window on the female experience in the modern world, and an inspiring tale of courage and love, Jung Chang describes the extraordinary lives and experiences of her family members: her grandmother, a warlord’s concubine; her mother’s struggles as a young idealistic Communist; and her parents’ experience as members of the Communist elite and their ordeal during the Cultural Revolution. Chang was a Red Guard briefly at the age of fourteen, then worked as a peasant, a “barefoot doctor,” a steelworker, and an electrician.
As the story of each generation unfolds, Chang captures in gripping, moving—and ultimately uplifting, detail the cycles of violent drama visited on her own family and millions of others caught in the whirlwind of history.

Red Platoon: A True Story of American Valor by Clinton Romesha 

In today @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya.

In 2009, Clinton Romesha of Red Platoon and the rest of the Black Knight Troop were preparing to shut down Command Outpost Keating, the most remote and inaccessible in a string of bases built by the U.S. military in Nuristan and Kunar in the hope of preventing Taliban insurgents from moving freely back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Three years after its construction, the army was finally ready to concede what the men on the ground had known immediately: it was simply too isolated and too dangerous to defend.
