  • Although Duanwad Pimwana is often considered one of Thailand's greatest female writers, this will be her first instance of English-language book publication (simultaneously with another book in April 2018, from Two Lines Press).
  • Depicts ordinary and working-class people from Thailand in a social realist style, departing from the usual magical realist styles used to depict southeast Asia in English-language literature.
  • Rather than a straight translation of a preexisting Thai-language book, Arid Dreams combines the widely-acclaimed collection The Second Book with other celebrated pieces from her career. For those interested in contemporary Thai literature, Arid Dreams is the most comprehensive introduction to Pimwana's work.
  • Will include an afterword by a notable academic to help contextualize Pimwana's work, and to help position the book for course adoption.
