Everyone who lives in Bangkok, whether they were born there or chose it as their home, has a different view of the city–no two people live in the same place, even if they live on the same block. In this book are images of five different cities through the eyes of five different residents–showing the Bangkok that they have found and hurried to preserve with a camera before it becomes lost.
Janet Brown has always lived on the Pacific Rim: in Alaska, Seattle, and Thailand. A bookseller for twenty years, she was until recently travel buyer at the Elliott Bay Book Company, that literary oasis that makes Seattle livable.
Janet took an extended cigarette break between 1995 and 2001 to teach English in Bangkok. She is now back in Seattle, reinventing her life and planning a permanent return to that city that she loves best in the world, despite her continuing battle with the Thai language (which up to this point is the clear-cut winner).
