Places remember us...

'An important, ambitious, and accomplished novel. Sudbanthad deftly sweeps us up in a tale that paints a twin portrait: of a megacity like those so many of us call home and of a world where sanctuary is increasingly hard to come by'
 Mohsin Hamid

A missionary begs to be sent home.
A jazz pianist is hired to perform for ghosts.
An army colonel smells the food of home for the last time.
A girl designs herself a new face.
An old woman uploads her consciousness.

Bangkok Wakes to Rain is an intricately plotted novel where characters and stories are linked by place, not time. As the novel builds to a futuristic crescendo, moments of intimacy serve to remind us that no matter what the ebb of time may change, we humans persevere.
