Wanlaya's love

Wanlaya's love

by SEINEE SAOWAPHONG (Author)





Paris after the Second World War:

the Left Bank, Montmartre and Picasso's dove.

Wanlaya is a Thai music student

with challenging ideas and challenged friends,

all engaged in their own ways

in a search for the true values of life.



The meaning of art, the birth of music,

the evil of elitist education,

the value of work, women's liberation:

this swinging, iconoclastic novel of ideas,

published in the early 1950s

but only read twenty years later,

has inspired Thai progressive circles ever since,

and remains a hymn to life clamouring for change

and ringing with the hopes and generosity of youth.
