4028 Siburapha BEHIND THE PAINTING AND OTHER STORIES
Singapore Oxford University Press 1990 Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
13 x 20 cm.; pg. vi, 191 ; Translated from the Thai and introduced by David Smyth. "Siburapha (pseud. Kulap Saipradit, 1905-1974) has enjoyed a chequered reputation in the Thai literary world, A popular and accomplished writer of romantic novels at the outset of his career in the late 1920s, his later work of the post-war period relected a more politically committed view of the role of the writer and the function of literature. Imprisoned from 1952 to 1957, Siburapha subsequently sought asylum in China, where he remained for the rest of his life. Thereafter his name became taboo until he was 'rediscovered' in the more liberal atmosphere of the early 1970s. This volume brings together Sibuapha's most highly acclaimed novel, BEHIND THE PAINTING, written in 1937, and three of his post-war stories. This is the first time that Siburapha's fiction has appeared in English. " ; 0195889622
