Praise

“If you have an affection for the Southeast Asian region and enjoy a good novel, especially a novel that really brings the characters to life, then I highly recommend ''Waiting for the lady'', in fact I highly recommend it to anyone.”
Trevor Bide, Amazon.com reviewer

Compelling story lines . . . that come together in a gripping climax.
—Newsweek

Ambitious and sadly beautiful book.
—January Magazine

Amusing and illuminating . . . a narrative whose authenticity is never in doubt, where global historical realities are seamlessly knit together with a strong, unpretentious yarn.
—Books in Canada

In addition to creating a convincing, entertaining narrator, Sloan, and a story that engages the past and its images on several levels, Moore crafts a tragic Myanmar landscape, mixing in-depth knowledge of the place and its history with a compelling tale populated with characters anyone would be glad to have as travel companions.
—Asia Times (Online)

A charged atmosphere reminiscent of Peter Weir’s The Year of Living Dangerously.
—Vancouver Sun

“The powerful sentiments stirred in [Waiting for the Lady] affirm that Asia still boasts places where people's emotions are not swaddled in cotton.”
—The Japan Times

Moore’s knowledge of the region and his ability to convey it is best about Waiting for the Lady.
—Bernard Trink, Bangkok Post

Christopher G. Moore is an author who can conjure up a plausible story to keep you reading his books till the last page. Waiting for the Lady is no exception to this. A great read.
—Reid Lang, Pattaya Mail

But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>

The Age of Dis-ConsentThe Age of Dis-Consent

In the follow up to The Cultural Detective, Faking It in Bangkok, and Fear and Loathing in Bangkok, Moore pays caring and critical homage to his residence of choice by diagnosing some of Thailand’s discontents and offering subtle remedies for readers to tease out.

The essays range from political conflict to violence and criminal investigations in the digital age, to cultural upheavals, cognitive science and writing, including essays about Orwell, Kafka, and Henry Miller. More>>
