Peter Jaggs has probably written and sold more books about the raunchier side of life in Thailand than any other author alive or dead. The brutal accuracy of his writing in a genre that is unavoidably always going to be controversial has inevitably provoked reaction from offended internet trolls accusing him of being a faker, a reprobate or even worse. Much more credible reviews in the Thai and ex-pat media on TV and in leading newspapers have described Jaggs as being (quote) ?a highly-skilled writer, supremely confident in his craft? and appraised his books as being ?Modern Classics of Pattaya? and ?the best books on Pattaya written?.
Whether you love his tales or hate them, it is undeniable that they are never boring. Jaggs has written himself into the history of the night-streets of Thailand and his work will surely continue to be read and discussed for as long as people visit the country.
The stories in Thailand Crackers are vintage Jaggs and concentrate on the off-beat lives of eighteen resourceful entrepreneurs who live by their wits on the streets of a country where life can be hard. They include the accounts of an alcoholic septuagenarian mamasan, a teenage drug dealer, a hill-tribe grandfather, a bar-girl without a heart, an evil confidence trickster and a love-struck street dog; all told with the author?s usual colorful candidness that will disappoint neither his supporters nor his detractors and give them plenty of food for thought to get their teeth into.
