Tony lives with the nightmare of what he did as a soldier in Vietnam. It consumes him day and night. He finally returns to Asia and rents a small house in a Bangkok slum where he hopes to live the rest of his life anonymously and in silence.  But the people of Soi 4 Community begin to befriend Tony even though he tries hard to resist. Through the persistence of these friends, Tony is slowly drawn into the community and its fight against a looming eviction. These experiences help Tony realise that his nightmare comes from his own inability to forgive himself, and he finally finds the peace he has been searching for.

About the author (2012)

Born in 1946 Max Ediger grew up on a small farm in the Panhandle of Oklahoma. At the age of 19 he began working with an international Non-Government Organization, serving in Africa, Vietnam and Thailand. His work has brought him into close personal contact with refugees, slum communities, poor rural communities and victims of war. These communities struggling for justice and human rights have greatly influenced his writing, which attempts to reflect to the reader the hope and courage he finds among people in struggle.
