Jasmine nights by S.P. Somtow

1EF9515F-B6FA-4F98-90C5-001DD739BCF0Book set in Bangkok, Thailand. Reviewed on 2019/07: https://www.instagram.com/p/BzvgGxDAJBB/

A few days later after having read this book and I still have no idea what this book is about. Don’t get me wrong! The intricacies and sophistication of #spsomtow ‘s writing style is quite something and arguably the only reason why I kept reading. Although at page 200 and so, I really wanted to have a remote idea of where he’s leading us to. Part #magicrealism , part #fantasy , part #horror and part #autobiography , #somtow wants to take you to a voyage of dreams/nightmares, heaven/hell and all the different stages in between. Again this is a highly embellished and beautiful read. However I did find myself lost a few times and overall struggling with the text. I’m sure there is an audience for this book and others by Somtow out there. I’m just not one of them. #thailiterature #jaminenights#comingofage #thailand #bangkok#Diplodocus #DiplodocusPress#littlefrog #nightmarish #twoworlds#riddle #stmartinspress
