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.
