  • Paris after the Second World War:  the Left Bank, Montmartre and Picasso's dove.  Wanlaya is a Thai music student  with challenging ideas and challenged friends,  all engaged in their own ways  in a search for the true values of life.

    The meaning of art, the birth of music,  the evil of elitist education,  the value of work, women's liberation:  this swinging, iconoclastic novel of ideas,  published in the early 1950s  but only read twenty years later,  has inspired Thai progressive circles ever since,  and remains a hymn to life clamouring for change  and ringing with the hopes and generosity of youth.
