Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth Paperback / softback
On the day Chareeya is born, her mother discovers that her father has been having an affair with a traditional Thai dancer.
From that moment on, Chareeya's life is fated to carry the weight of her parents' disappointments.
She and her beautiful sister, Chalika, grow up in a lush riverside town near the Thai capital, Bangkok, subsumed by their respective hot-house passions - reading trashy romance novels, listening to the entire oeuvre of Western classical music on vinyl records, cultivating tropical plants, concocting Thai desserts, and trying to recalibrate the emotional discrepancy in their lives.
When the laconic orphan, Pran, enters their world, he unwittingly lures the sisters further into a labyrinth of their own making as they each attempt to escape their fate.
