    The Tale of Khun Chang Khun Phaen

    One of Thailand's most famous stories of love and war has been translated into English for the first time.
    The Tale of Khun Chang Khun Phaen features a beautiful woman, a heroic young man - Thailand's answer to Casanova - and another, richer suitor.
    Does anyone know where one can purchas a copy?

    Good timing Chris Baker and Phasuk Phongchaipit (Chang Noi) have just published a full English translation. The first, as far as I know. You can get it here Amazon.com: The Tale of Khun Chang Khun Phaen (9789749511954): Muangsing Janchai, Chris Baker, Pasuk Phongpaichit: Books

    Pity you didn't ask a couple of months ago as Phasuk kept her working draft in a public web directory on her Chula Staff website and it was freely downloadable. I might still have a copy on my work computer (I printed the book out so I don't know if kept the pdf or not). If I can find it I'll PM you, be a few days though - I'm on holiday right now). Before you read the book you should read this, http://www.fringer.org/wp-content/wr...hris-baker.pdf for some excellent background on the book.
    don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just god when he's drunk
