Bangkok Babylon

Bangkok Babylon

The Real-Life Exploits of Bangkok's Legendary Expatriates are often Stranger than Fiction

In the colorful tradition of Orwell and Hemingway, Maugham and Theroux, Jerry Hopkins recalls his first decade as a Bangkok expatriate by profiling twenty-five of the city's most unforgettable characters. Among them are a Catholic priest who has lived and worked in the Bangkok slums for 35 years, three Vietnam war helicopter pilots who opened a go-go bar and a documentary filmmaker who lives with elephants.
