Our Man in Pattaya by Duncan Stearn, the author of Pattaya, Patpong on Steroids.Come for a walk on the wacky side as Pattaya and its locals and foreigners come together in a collection of the best of the popular Our Man in Pattaya monthly columnsMoreOur Man in Pattaya by Duncan Stearn, the author of Pattaya, Patpong on Steroids.Come for a walk on the wacky side as Pattaya and its locals and foreigners come together in a collection of the best of the popular Our Man in Pattaya monthly columns from the pages of the Pattaya Trader (also published by the Phuket Gazette newspaper under the title Streets of Pattaya).These columns - by way of a scalpel-sharp wit and savagely funny lines - offer a wry look into the sometimes wonderful, regularly erratic, always engaging and interesting life of Pattaya, a place the city fathers, lodged firmly in their ivory tower, delude themselves into thinking is Thailands premier seaside resort.The football World Cup, astrological charts, Japanese programs on Thai TV, a religious freak in Penang, an over-exuberant Russian on Pattayas Walking Street, and the Tourism Authority of Thailands domestic travel campaign all come in for that special brand of irony and sardonic wit, the hallmark of the column.A bracket of Thai phrases involving crocodiles, sharks, and elephants- an idea for a fox hunt- pachyderms on zebra crossings- news stories concerning foreigners leaping from high floors in condo complexes, and, of course, the consistently hilarious situations in the never-ending battle of the sexes are all dealt with in the usual irreverent manner.If laughter is the best medicine, then this book should be required reading in hospital wards, doctors surgeries, government offices, and departure terminals in any airport- basically, anywhere a sense of humour would be appreciated.
