Ex-prostitute wins top women's literary prize


Recommended Posts



"Thanadda Sawangduean, 42, has been declared the winner of this year's Chommanard Book Prize.


The literary contest, which is sponsored by Bangkok Bank and Praphansarn Publishing House Co, is in its second year.


Ms Thanadda's biographical work Chan Chue Eri: Kap Prasopkarn Tang Daen (I Am Eri: My Experience Overseas) was selected as the winner from 13 entries this year.


She said the book was based on her personal experience after she was lured into work as a prostitute.


She said she was born into a poor family and had to struggle to make ends meet during her childhood.


An unplanned pregnancy as a teenager meant she had to drop out of school. As a result, her family and others who were close to her decided to turn their backs on her.


Ms Thanadda said she was first lured into prostitution in Pattaya ...."


Maybe some of the more senior board members remember her ???


Personally I hope she sells a million copies and intend to contribute to that goal by picking up one next time I am in country.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
