Probably won't be able to attend the next meeting, not even in Thai-style lateness because I have to go away for a week or so, sorting my next visa out and taking a much needed break from Bangkok. Man, I have become an irritable, misogynistic f**ker these past few weeks. :P :roll:

:twisted:

One of the funiest books I have read is called A Year In The Merde by Stephen Clarke.

It made me laugh out loud a few times. Sorry to those sitting me near me on the train when I did, the second book is just as good called Merde Actually.

It's an awesome series of books, coincidentally I actually e-mailed the author yesterday to find out when his next book is out.

hi

and thanks for that. i am currently finishing up a new book which is due out (in the uk at least) on march 18, called "1000 years of annoying the french".

hope you'll look out for it.

yes, thailand is crazy - i'd have to go and spend some time out there before writing about. i wonder if my publisher will subsidize the trip ...

best

Stephen Clarke

If anyone knows any other authors who write in similar style to Stephen Clarke i'd love to know. It's very funny and interesting books

There is the great annual booksale at Kinokuniya at Paragon with a thousand or so books on until the end of the month.

Lots of mainly non-fiction titles ranging from technical books on electronics and medicine to political hardcovers, eg. Woodward's Bush book, to travel to japanese manga books. Most are going for half price.

I even managed to find an obscure geneology of modern torture book that I have been wanting to buy for work. :)

Seconded. Some of the funniest stuff I've read and I too got plenty of stares for laughing out loud uncontrollably in public. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

I bet your Irish country men wished they had some hands-on experience like we have in invading garlic-smelling Western neighbours...

...and they'd probably would pursue collecting severed hands like the Belgians did in the Congo as a a favourite past time.

:twisted:
