about this book: This book is a semi-fictional account of my 50th birthday celebrated 'At the Bamboo Bar' in Bangkok's Oriental Hotel. It consists mostly of colorful characters and witty dialogue that all made for a most enjoyable evening. There's an amusing play-reading, a murder and a honeymooning Dutch couple making love in the back of the room...all fiction. Part of the story takes place in the Noel Coward Suite in the old, original wing of the hotel. I should think that the primary readers are those who appreciate scintillating humor and well-written prose.

I long wanted to write a book that occurred in one location on one evening. That is what inspired me to write this book. My research was assisted by a most gracious member of the Oriental Hotel staff and, of course, the evening I spent at the Bamboo Bar. The bartender mentioned in the book was very real and very charming. I believe this story could be enjoyed in one or two sittings with, perhaps, one or two Jameson whiskeys.
