Publisher's Summary

Weary from running his printing business in Southern California, Scott Mallon hops on a jet bound for Thailand with three bags and $10,000 to his name. Originally planned as a one year sabbatical, his journey ends up as a 20-year stay. In They Call Me Farang, Mallon delivers a timeless collection of insightful, compelling short stories in the only way he knows, with dry humor and a straightforward, no-holds-barred voice. Learn what life is really like as an expatriate in Thailand; there is action, advice, comedy, love, and of course, plenty of commentary on Thailand’s beautiful women. Get all the gritty details in this semi-autobiographical account of his two decades in the country.

Frat Boy Forever

The author's home spun wisdom about sexual politics in Thailand wears thin very fast. At first, maybe it's snappy, savvy stuff. But yawn, after five minutes - boring...
