Publisher's Summary

An intoxicating collage of lives intersecting around a building in Bangkok.  

Places remember us.... 

A missionary begs to be moved from disease-ridden Bangkok.
A musician plays a private show for ghosts.
A student abandoned by his lover bleeds to death in the street.
A plastic surgeon designs a girl a new face.
A woman decides whether to cook a final meal for a dying murderer.   

Lurching through decades, from Bangkok's rich past to its imagined, uploaded future, witness the city as it changes from a booming capitalist hub to a city engulfed by water, through human tales seeping into one another, held together by delicate threads.  

For fans of A Visit from the Goon Squad and Cloud Atlas, this is a startling and intimate novel by a lyrical new writer.
