“I hope you’ll try to understand.”
 
“What is there to understand?” He asked and could not help but sound heartless.
 
“That I didn’t mean to leave you. You really thought I deserted you?”
 
“Yes, Mother,” he answered. “I certainly did.”
 
Winner of the prestigious S.E.A. Write Award, Gold-Pasted Cement captures the world of privileged Thais in the 1980s, a time of modernization and rampant male privilege. The products of broken homes, Songmuang and Balee are plagued by their past. Now they are determined to build a home. Written with great insight by Thailand’s National Artist Krisna Asoksin, Gold-Pasted Cement is a favourite among Thais.
 
“Few books so deftly mirror Thai families today.”
