TIME IN A BOTTLE
Praphatsorn Seiwikun


Do you remember Jim Croce
and his 'If I could save time in a bottle...'?

How do teenagers feel when their parents separate
and find themselves new partners?
How do you feel when the girl you love has only friendship to give,
and you only have friendship to give to the girl who loves you?
When you are dragged into studies you hate,
and your friends die or go mad
as their generous dreams drift into the nightmare of history?
 

This national bestseller, emblematic of the 1970s student generation, explores the generation gap between parents and children in a Bangkok middle-class family, the pains of growing up and tug-of-war between friendship and love in teenage hearts. The world of feelings and frustrations it sketches in a swift patchwork of flashbacks, impressionistic and particularly vivid and true to life, is familiar to adolescents the world over.
