TWIB reviews plus ordering info

January 21, 2015 by

Dear Book Lovers,

Since its publication in September 2013, my memoir Tennessee Williams in Bangkok has been reviewed several times, both in magazines and by Amazon customers. All the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. And although I’m not getting anywhere near rich from it :-), the sales are coming along. Interestingly enough helped by the release in December 2014 of the Dutch edition, entitled Bangkok Confidential. Hereunder you have a clickable listing of those reviews. And at the end a hyperlink for ordering the book, either in print or as an eBook. Plus scroll down a ways on that page to already read the first four chapters for free!

TWIB was also reviewed by Jim Feast in the Spring 2014 print edition of Rain Taxi Review of Books.

And here’s how to order the book (and check out those free chapters!)

It’s a good read. And a fast one. So go ahead and buy TWIB now. Trust me, you will not be disappointed! For sure there are further volumes of memoirs in the works, along with so much other groovy stuff. I’m on a creative roll, folks. And I’ve no intention of voluntarily stopping anytime soon.

Cheers, EDDIE

A Passport to Elsewhere

May 16, 2014 by

Hey Wow,

“If this man hadn’t been a decadent, he would have been a Jesuit.” That’s
Richard Jurgens on me (and oh how true!) in his magnificent review of
Tennessee Williams in Bangkok, which at the same time is an essay about the book’s author. It has just been published in Urban Graffiti magazine and you can read it here

As many of you already know, the book itself is available from almost all
Amazon sites, as well as from AbeBooks and the publisher. But if you want direct links rather than having to search, just scroll down a little ways here

An earlier review by Richard Livermore (likewise excellent) appeared online in Ol’ Chanty magazine. This is it

And then bart plantenga combined his review with an interview in Eddie Woods has been around the block

While Jim Feast reviewed Tennessee Williams in Bangkok for Rain Taxi Review of Books (the Spring 2014 print edition)

Happy reading, folks.
And ever upward and onward!

Cheers, EDDIE
