The Festival of Earthly Delights

When young American Boyd Darrow relocated to the Southeast Asian country of Puchai, he'd hoped to find his future in this tiny nation in which a wink can have hundreds of meanings.  But the tangles of heartbreak, it turns out, can be found anywhere on Earth -- even in a land where the spirits of turtles will curse the unwary.  A delightfully funny and heartfelt novel from a fresh voice in fiction.
