Item description for Good Daughter by Bjorn Turmann...

Good Daughter is a tale of cross-cultural intrigue and personal discovery. Set in Thailand, it follows the journeys of six characters: two intelligent, imaginative Thai bargirls, a paranoid, well-paid American expatriate and his cynical, corrupting Australian mentor, a young American university graduate and an Isaan villager whose reoccurring presence borders on the mythical. Combining entertaining and dramatic narrative with poignant psychological themes, this is a novel that challenges the reader to look beneath the surface in order to try to understand what influences the characters behavior. At the conclusion of the story we are shown that, by releasing ourselves from that which binds us, we are able to attain greater hope and, ultimately, freedom.

Reviews - What do customers think about Good Daughter?

Excellent for book club discussion  Jun 28, 2007
Tells a story about part of some Asian culture that most Americans are not/don't want to be aware. It would make for some very good and interesting discussion in any book club. Story shows dignity/faults of human beings, and I totally agree with assesment of the first writers' review of the book. Found the book very easy to read. Author was able to get personalities down "pat" I understand that he is working on his third book and I look forward to reading that too.
Must read for expat living in Thailand  Sep 4, 2006
Good Daughter by Bjorn Turmann is a rare read in an otherwise saturated market of books about relationahips between western men and Thai women. This is a serious read about love and the complexity of interracial relationships. Living in Asia myself for over 7 years, I found Good Daughter taking me on a ride down memory lane in many cases reminding me of feelings I had tried to surpress and forget. But great writers have a way of bringing to life not only the book but also tapping the reader's emotions. Thank you to Mr. Turmann for bringing to life on paper what so many have experienced in life. This is a must read for any expat planning to live in SE Asia, especially those professionals that have spent their life in pursuit of understanding the Asia mystique.
