From the back cover:
Very few books on Thailand are written by women. Bangkok Blondes is one of the first. It reflects the lives of creative women who live and write in Thailand - The Bangkok Women's Writers Group.
Bangkok Blondes shows you everything in the tourist package and more: Palms and Elephants, Ghostbusters, Confessions of a Shopaholic's Aunt, The Land of the Great White Lovers, The Other Grandmas and even Survivor Bangkok. Short stories, articles, essays and poems.
Written in compelling, genuine, and diverse voices, the stories vividly reveal a new view approaching an evolving culture. As a whole, they capture the reality of a modern cosmopolotan city in an ancient land.
