Here, among other high jinks, he mounts elephants with polo mallet in hand, skitters about slippery yacht decks, presides over songfests at the Peachy Flophouse School of Journalism, stars in a Thai movie and soap opera, and is adopted as a guitar-playing mascot by a tribe of masseuses in Phuket. Covering nearly thirty years of calamitous carousals in Thailand, Thai Jinks is a fun-packed lesson in what you shouldnt do if you want to be a responsible adult.Through the eighties and nineties and into the new century we followed the humorous adventures of Jim Eckardt in both of Bangkoks daily English language newspapers, the Bangkok Post and the Nation. You see, things happened to Jim. It often involved beer. Some of these things werent so good, but they were always funny and never dull. - Danny Speight, DCO Books
