A collection of short stories selected from three of his award winning books: Arpate Kamsual (Portent of Doom, first published 1994), Sing Me Cheewit Tee Riak Wa Khon (A Living Thing Called Human, first published 1999, SEA Write Award 1999), and PanMoreA collection of short stories selected from three of his award winning books: Arpate Kamsual (Portent of Doom, first published 1994), Sing Me Cheewit Tee Riak Wa Khon (A Living Thing Called Human, first published 1999, SEA Write Award 1999), and Pan Nam Pen Tua (Water Sculpture, first published 2003).What is known as ‘modern Thai literature’ had its inception around a century ago, during the reigns of Kings Rama 5 and 6 of the Chakri Dynasty.

The departure from the traditional forms was very distinct markedly in conceptualisation, plotting, and writing style that reflects the influence of the West. This was the start of the escapism genre that spawned the newly fashionable short stories and novels.From escapism, there evolved a literary style that addressed social, political and humanity issues, works deserving to be read as literature.

Some of these works asserted influence that brought about social and political changes.The early 1970s could be said to have brought the‘responsibility literature’ to its apogee. This was the period when consciousness of democracy and the demand for its true principle reached a turbulent height. Students and intellectuals in Thailand took to the street in an epic struggle to free the country from decades of despotic military rules.

The incident of October 14, 1973 was hailed as the triumphant People’s Revolution, which brought the full flowering of democracy. Literature and songs showcased creativity and achieved widespread popularity. Short stories and novels now featured characters plucked from the lower classes, with plot lines that dealt with social injustice and sufferings. Writers endlessly discuss freedom of the people, a utopian society and an idealistic political climate.If there is a formula in soap operatic escapist fiction that they all provide sweet romance, rampant jealousy, bitter contest for inheritance, etc., the so-called literature genre is equally formulaic as they unfailingly highlighted the hardship and affliction of the lower classes, the struggle for freedom, and the hungering for impossible ideals.

As such both camps can be said to have come to a development dead-end.With globalisation a new worldview, a Thai writer erupted into the scene bringing innovation. Win Lyovarin’s work began to appear in magazines during the late 1980s. He brought a new element into his writing, that of visual design, presenting social literature in a brand new light.The experimental stories of his early period boldly weaved graphic design into their fabric. They garnered a garland of literary awards accompanied by heated discussion and criticism.

With his imprint firmly established, Win showed an inclination to leave off experimenting, and settled into a more contemporary style.Man Doomed is a collection of short stories selected from three of his award winning books: Arpate Kamsual (Portent of Doom, first published 1994), Sing Me Cheewit Tee Riak Wa Khon (A Living Thing CalledHuman, first published 1999), and Pan Nam Pen Tua (Water Sculpture, first published 2003).
