Summary

As a Bookseller, Janet Brown had Every Opportunity to Learn About Bangkok Before She Moved There. Guidebooks lay the groundwork, photography books set the mood, but nothing prepared her for what she found-a city as sensuous, irreverent, reverent, and indiscreet as the stories she tells in Tone Deaf in Bangkok.
