Pattaya Tales by Geoffrey Franklin.

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

Somewhere between an international fantasy world and one of harsh reality, the characters in these varied stories become involved in humourous, dangerous, sometimes violent adventures, set against a colourful backdrop of flora and fauna, festivals, arcane beliefs and ghosts. 
Here, dreams are often perceived as future indicators and reincarnation is seldom, if ever questioned. 
Nothing is forever, or quite as it seems to be. 
The only certainty is life is never dull or grey, these stories are fictional, but truth is often is often stranger than fiction and every good yarn has an essential thread of truth within it. Many of the events in these stories often involved or were witnessed by the author.
Geoffrey Franklin is an English Artist / Writer who studied Art and Design at the Birmingham and Royal College of Art, London. 
A Pattaya resident he has painted many of the delights of South East Asia, Angkor Wat, Cambodia in particular.

Awakenings by Oliver Sacks

Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange / Guesthouse / Cafe, #Pattaya.

Awakenings, which inspired the major motion picture, is the remarkable story of a group of patients who contracted sleeping sickness during the great epidemic just after World War I. 
Frozen for decades in a trance like state, these men and women were given up as hopeless until 1969, when Dr. Oliver Sacks gave them the then new drug L-DOPA, which had an astonishing, explosive, "awakening" effect. 
Dr. Sacks recounts the moving case histories of his patients, their lives, and the extraordinary transformations which went with their reintroduction to a changed world.

And; 

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks.

 

In his most extraordinary book, "one of the great clinical writers of the twentieth century" recounts the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders.
Oliver Sacks's The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat tells the stories of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations, patients who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts, who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects, who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities, whose limbs have become alien, who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

Malik Solanka, historian of ideas and world famous doll-maker, steps out of his life one day, abandons his family in London without a word of explanation, and flees for New York.
There’s a fury within him, and he fears he has become dangerous to those he loves.
He arrives in New York at a time of unprecedented plenty, in the highest hour of America’s wealth and power, seeking to “erase” himself. But fury is all around him.
An astonishing work of explosive energy, Fury is by turns a pitiless and pitch black comedy, a love story of mesmerizing force, and a disturbing inquiry into the darkest side of human nature.
