I am a white, heterosexual male writer, somewhat long-in-the-tooth, looking for a beautiful, succulent, curvaceous young Thai woman who has her own car and apartment and income, who hates superficial American-style babbling about "relationships" and who will treat me as if I am the best thing to come along since grasshoppers deep fried in hot pepper oil. You should be fluent in English and be able to discuss Theater of the Absurd, Brecht's Alienation Effect, Camus's philosophy, the music of Beethoven and Mozart, the writing of Fante and Bukowski and Burroughs and Hammett and Chandler and Chester Himes and R.H. van Gulik, and the poetry of Li Po and Tu Fu, but you should be smart enough never to actually discuss such stuff unless I ask you to. You should be great in bed and willing to wear lingerie and black leather and thong bikinis at home but dress conservatively when out shopping, blame yourself on those rare occasions when I don't get a hard-on, be willing to put toothpaste on my toothbrush, be allergic to ATM machines, never ask for money, never get jealous or suspicious, never look at other men, and, basically, offer me pain-free love. And, of course, you will place loyalty to me ahead of loyalty to your family. Please send your application to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

"Kingdom of Make-Believe captures a slice of Thailand as it really is -- and was. The novel could only have been written by one who has experienced the Kingdom – and felt the pangs of seeing its magic mirrors crack and shatter.”
