Sightseeing by Rattawut Lapcharoensap The jewelled seas and sandy beached of Thailand are a dream destination for most of us, but for the characters in Sightseeing they are home. Rattawut Lapcharoensap's storytelling embraces the everyday in the exotic, to reveal a country that is dynamic and corrupt, full of pride, passion and fear.
Sightseeing is an exploration of what it means to be a son, a brother, a parent, a lover, a Thai - and a disenfranchised resident of the global village.
Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award.

"Every story in this collection is dense with event, emotion and meaning, This debut shows more than mere promise: it is a fine achievement in its own right."
(William Sutcliffe, Guardian)
