The magic of living and traveling in exotic locales doesn’t insulate anyone from a crisis of the soul. Nine Years in Bangkok: Lessons Learned is a memoir of Sharon Bazant’s adventurous, roller-coaster life as an ex-pat in Thailand.
Her path to self-discovery and acceptance is illuminated by a very real cast of characters:
- a Russian Shaman
- a spell-casting Thai massage master
- a Scottish hairdresser named Frankie Love
- a maid named Boom
- a spirit-channeling ambassador’s wife
- and Andrew who became Annie.
As a westerner in Southeast Asia, she pulls back the covers on such topics as traversing culture shock, long-distance parenting, marital breakdown, workplace betrayal (and revenge), mid-life career change, and more. Read how Sharon overcame these challenges and underwent a spiritual transformation during her nine years in Thailand. And, perhaps, see a path for yourself.
