I served in Peace Corps in Thailand during the Vietnam War, and contributed a piece to this anthology describing my nights spent at the notorious Mosquito Bar in Bangkok, trying to write the Great American novel. "Even The Smallest Crab Has Teeth: 50 Years of Amazing Peace Corps Stories: Volume Four, Asia & The Pacific is the last of a series of four handsome anthologies celebrating and recording Peace Corps’ accomplishments and contributions to the world through its first half century of life. In this final edition, Editor Jane Albritton reserved for herself the daunting task of collecting stories from the most diverse of the four regions: Asia and The Pacific. From land-locked Afghanistan to the smallest of islands in the far reaches of the Pacific Ocean, stories by peace Corps Volunteers from this region come from Hindu India, Confucian Korea, Muslim Indonesia and Buddhist Thailand."
