Isan Son-in-Law

A family’s roots in Northeast Thailand


Isan Son-in-Law is a memoir of the author’s developing relationship with his father-in-law and with his family which has its roots in a small town in Isan, where the cultures of Thailand and Laos mix. We get to know some of the people and places he came to know and love in Thailand and how he and his wife and their two children began to establish a life there and later in Laos, before eventually moving to England.
Isan Son-in-Law combines self-deprecating humour, cultural insight and colourful characters such as Mr Joonchit, the benevolent con-man, and Mac, the U.S. master-sergeant. This is no cultural tourism: this book is an invitation into an Isan family and its home.
The book gives a very detailed account of not only the lives of an Isan family, but also Isan ceremonies and rituals.
