From the acclaimed author of Bilal's Bread comes this unflinching portrait of an American-Thai young man struggling with his sexual identity. Isa is the product of a GI from Kansas City and a prostitute mother, and Thai society can be cruel to those not of pure breeding-they are called "bird-shit" foreigners. Tossed out by his family, the struggling gay teen learns to live on the street with a local gang before ultimately finding refuge with a local clergyman and his family. Beautifully written, evocative of setting, here is fiction that truly touches the heart.
