When New York chef Frank Visakay traded in the sweaty heat of the restaurant kitchen for the glorious tropical heat of Thailand, he thought he had found paradise. Not only was the lifestyle laid back, the food delicious and the beers chilled but he was even attracting the attention of beautiful Thai women.
Or so he thought. With Jasmine Fever, Visakay offers a series of revelations about his and his fellow expatriates’ relationships with Thai bargirls. And, as we learn from one of the eponymously named stories, perhaps he is ‘looking for love in all the wrong places’.
