A Man in Saffron Robes by Maitree Limpichart

A friend of mine Stephen Landau did a wonderful job translating this Thai masterpiece, A Man in Saffron Robes, a work by Maitree Limpichart.

Please check out reviews here.

The book review appeared in Journal of Siam Society.

As I wrote here, literary translation requires so much brain power to engage in such creative endeavor. I don’t believe that many Thai works are translated into English. Landau’s work is definitely a good place to start your collection.

New teacher review

“Titcha is a wonderful teacher!  I needed an instructor who could fashion a refresher course for conversational Thai and Titcha quickly assessed my prior knowledge and developed a specialized curriculum that was perfectly suited to my needs.  She took my lead on pace, selected great learning materials and was flexible about scheduling lessons. On a personal level, Titcha was exceptional – kind and patient but not a pushover.  She explained and clarified complex points with ease.  She is fantastic and I would recommend her without reservation!” –Michelle Onello
