In this exotic retelling of the fairy tale of Bluebeard, a New Age thirty-something from California is swept off her feet by an enigmatic Thai millionaire and soon finds herself in Bangkok's brave new world of shamans, shopping malls, and high society serial killers. Originally written as a cliff-hanging series for Bangkok's The Nation newspaper, The Other City of Angels is a roller-coaster roman-à-clef that leapfrogs from genre to genre and culture to culture, turning the western preconception of Bangkok as a city 'of temples and prostitutes' on its ear. A darkly comic odyssey populated with wild characters, with intimate glimpses into the eccentric antics of Asia's upper classes.
