Beschrijving

Despite its many legitimate attractions Thailand and in particular its capital Bangkok has a notorious reputation as a place where drugs, prostitution and organised crime are a way of life.

'A Field of Virgins' guides the reader through a pitiless environment where relationships can develop between individuals from the criminal classes of any given nation on the planet. These are the people traffickers, sex tourists, drug dealers, users and smugglers all bent on indulging themselves to the full in their addictions and desires.

Often the victims of rampant criminality vulnerable girls and women are forced to fight to survive and to try to save themselves and each other from being used and abused by the brothel owners, pimping Go-Go bars, predatory clients and even their own often poverty stricken families. This is the story of one such fight and of the people, both innocent and guilty, involved in it.

Notwithstanding the desperate circumstances depicted in 'A Field of Virgins' the book is written in a fluent colourful prose which describes a host of dysfunctional characters. With a vibrant sense of humour it encapsulates both the tragedy and the uncanny beauty of the country and of what the reader can expect to find in the Kingdom of Thailand.
