... and his very special "View from the Hill"-collection, now edited under the long title above... But with THIS title he really has hit the mark!
Many of the chapters in this book first appeared in 'Pattaya Today', the city's leading English newpaper, under the 'nom de plume' of Kuhn Pobaan. But his alias has been blown some time ago and now everyone in Pattaya knows who wrote down the episodes with his very pointed pen... :)
This is one of the most original and entertaining collections of the days in the life of a farang who moved to Pattaya with his Thai wife and built a house on a hill. But the view - oh yes, if You tip-toe or have a step-ladder there will be some view, says the author. But - do we believe him??? Eh no - without an excellent view from above he wouldn't have gathered all those funny, sometimes teasing, other times moving stories who give to the interested reader a wonderful inside into the ordinary (?) expat's life in Pattaya, Thailand. Hard it is, guys and gals - hard, but very very hard ... :)
May Mr Peskett live a long and happy life with his family high above the hill to give us more wonderful stuff like the story collection Nr. 1 Mango and Sticky Rice and Nr 2 Mist on the Jungle, which stupid me naturally read before Nr 1... Both real pearls, partly with Thai themes and others with Irish/English motives. In this moment I am reading his novel Losing Yourself, which is very interesting. Until now Mr Peskett has never disappointed my expectations.
