What happens to common country folk
when they are caught in the jaws
of wayward religion and superstition?
This is what happens, at Khoak Phranang,
the epicentre of rural Thailand in the 1990s.
A short, droll and dispiriting interlude
before the final confrontation
between the masters of spiritual spin.
Read it in Lord of the Land,
the keystone of the Khoak Phranang Quartet.
