Morgan McFinn

about this book: This story is set in Bangkok's prestigious Peninsula Hotel where a group of volunteers gather to take phone calls from fellow ex-pats who are depressed about being away from home during the holiday season. Various orthodox and a few unorthodox suggestions are offered to help the callers cope with their holiday doldrums. It is primarily a comedy reminiscent of Bob Newhart with plenty of droll and witty conversation via the telephone. There is, however, a tragic twist at the conclusion. A certain amount of friction develops between some of the volunteers that the moderator, a professional psychiatrist, usually manages to assuage. His concern is to have the volunteers focus on providing solace to the despondent callers without creating tension amongst themselves. Humor and compassion are the prevailing therapies.

Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all!

5 Star review: "A quick and rewarding read: clever, witty and very funny. Nicely written and consistently entertaining."
