Winner of the Chommanard Book Prize, One Life Before Sunset follows the author from her rural village in Thailand to the rat race in the country’s metropolis and life on a Grecian island. Resented by her mother-in-law, she spirals into depression and daily feuds with her husband. One Life Before Sunset is her attempt to follow her dream of becoming a writer, with her reflections on regret, loss, and the importance of letting go.
“Sirinrampai’s sliver of life is full of charm. She writes with a mastery which transports readers into an array of lived experience, and always with hope for a better tomorrow.”
