A parcel from Thailand
Writing about last month’s special place sent me casting the net for the books of Dr Jaroslav Poncar. There is one at the State Library of Queensland (hidden away in the stacks), and another in the Queensland University of Technology Library (at a campus on the other side of town).
Amazon has some of his books, but not the one I found in a Bangkok bookshop.
My copy arrived today, in a brown paper package tied up with string. Not like one of those parcels you get from amazon.com. I’m too busy to read books at the moment, so it can stay wrapped. Oh yeah, that’s right.
