Description - Bangkok Boy by Chai Pinit

"Mine is a story that no one wants to hear." This is the story of a boy who grew into a dysfunctional man. Chai Pinit had a normal childhood in Thailand until he was molested by a teacher. Unable to confide in anyone or seek counselling for the abuse, he started drinking in his teenage years and became an alcoholic who sold his body for money in the red-light districts of Bangkok and Pattaya. But now, after years of emotional torment and despair, the author feels it is time to tell his heartbreaking story. "Bangkok Boy" is a devastating account of a childhood stolen by sexual abuse and the consequences that follows. The book is also a story of redemption and his struggle to rebuild his life. "Bangkok Boy" is no ordinary story. It is one of hope and triumph in the face of adversity.
