Morgan McFinn

about this book: This book consists of ninety plus short entries that were written while the author lived in a wooden Khmer style bungalow along the Kampot River in Southwest Cambodia. There are tributes to greatness...John Keats, Fred Astaire and Jimmy Connors. And, an anecdote regarding a pretender to greatness...Gore Vidal. Jim Thompson, the 'Silk King of Thailand' and his mysterious disappearance is also addressed. Several pieces concern the trials and tribulations of being a writer. My delightful wife, Nak, features prominently as I chronicle what it was like living amidst a rural and pristine setting. Most of the entries are meant to be amusing although several of them deal with the tragic circumstances that plagued Cambodia during the reign of the Khmer Rouge.

The book was written over a period of a year. The entries average approximately one hundred and sixty words each. Think of it as a buffet of scrumptious literary hors d'oeuvre to be sampled at your leisure. All in all, Morgan McFinn's unique style of expression prevails throughout.
