Asia Talks: Duanwad Pimwana at the Seattle Art Museum
Nordstrom Lecture Hall | Seattle Art Museum | 1300 First Avenue | Seattle, WA
Duanwad Pimwana visits from Thailand to discuss her novel and a short story collection with translator Mui Poopoksakul. Bright is the first novel to be published in English by a Thai woman (Two Lines Press, 2019). Left behind by his family, a five-year-old boy has adventures that are both hilarious and sad with arguing neighbors, other children, a shopkeeper going broke, and dueling flea marketers.
Arid Dreams (Feminist Press at CUNY, 2019) is a short story collection featuring various urbanized villagers navigating their fast-changing world and gender roles.
