Bangkok Tattoo is probably the most compelling book I've encountered in the nearly three years I've been an Audible listener. It is a great many contradictory things: violent, compassionate, graphic, delicate, sexual, sensual, spiritual, surreal, earthy, funny at times, horrible at others, extremely well written and well read. The star follows the death of his partner and the unravelling of a peculiar case that is weird, even by Bangkok standards. Needless to say, this book comes highly recommended and my favourite Bangkok novelist, Jake Needham, now has some real competition.
