About James Eckardt

James Eckardt lived in Thailand for 30 years, half in his wife's hometown of Songkhla, the scene of his novel "Boat People" and his first story collection "Waylaid by the Bimbos", and half in Bangkok, his base for the profiles in "Bangkok People" and his second book of stories "On the Bus with Yobs, Frogs, Sods and the Lovely Lena". A year in Cambodia furnished the material for "The Year of LIving Stupidly".

A former Catholic seminarian, civil rights worker and Peace Corps volunteer, James Eckardt has also written the novels "Alabama Days" and "Running with the Sharks", a fourth story collection "Thai Jinks: Madcap Misadventures on Land and Sea in Thailand", and a memoir: "Singapore GIrl".

"I was fascinated by "Singapore Girl", a love story like no other -- bizarre and oddly moving." -- Paul Theroux
