In 2005, to mark the first anniversary of the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean that took so many lives, the BBC commissioned Tew Bunnag, along with others authors from the affected countries, to write a short story to be broadcast on Radio 4. Tew wrote the moving 'Lek and Mrs. Miller'. Exceptionally well-received, he decided to write a collection of stories surrounding the Tsunami. These were inspired by his experiences working in the South of Thailand for an NGO helping and talking to those who were suffering from the aftermath, and who suffered the devastation at first hand and dealing with the loss of their families and friends, as well as, in some cases, their livelihoods. Though their themes are tied to the disaster that took place, the stories touch on universal issues that go beyond the actual event such as loss, recovery and continuation after a tragedy. The collection is a deeply moving and poignant read for all those who love contemporary fiction.
