On the day Chareeya is born, her mother discovers her father has been having an affair with a traditional Thai dancer. From that moment, Chareeya's life is fated to carry the weight of her parents' disappointment.

Review:
Mesmerizing and unputdownable - a virtuoso translation of what must surely be one of the best Thai novels to make it into English. --Lawrence Osborne, author of Hunters in the Dark and Only to Sleep

Rich with mythical imagery, [The Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth] plunges the reader into a contemporary Thai life strongly influenced by Western culture while steeped in timeless traditions and Buddhist thought, and roiled by decades of political dissent. ... The translator has done a masterful job of capturing the author s sumptuous prose, each sentence unfurling like a brightly dyed bolt of silk --The Washington Independent Review of Books

Engrossing and addictive a unique window onto the Thai soul in turmoil. More than any other Thai publication in English currently out right now, The Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth is the most complete and enjoyable novel for losing one s self in Thai fiction. --Asian Review of Books (Hong Kong)
