In 1970s Thailand, three young people meet each other with fateful results. Det’s just lost his mother, the granddaughter of a king. He clings to Chang, a smart boy from the slums, as they go to college, where Det falls for Lek, a Chinese immigrant with radical ideals. Longing for glory, Det journeys into his friends’ political circles. A Good True Thai is a historic epic that takes the reader through Thailand’s most famous period of political and artistic openness, and asks the question: is democracy the most equitable type of government, or a foreign import suitable only to the West?
