Tsunami Eyes

389 printed pages
At odds with the suffocating tsunami inching closer and closer stand a women and man alone together on a beach, calmly living their last moments through each other’s eyes and ignoring the eternity beginning to enshroud them.
A Thai boy stands on top of a boulder, staring dully at the scene, piss running down his gangly leg. He does not curse his short, unfulfilled life, but instead wonders what two people in love say to each other moments before the end. Was it a wasted life? Did they have regrets?
Back down on the beach, as the first splashes of the wall of water rain down on them, their lives are relived in the blink of an eye amidst visions of youth, smiles, delight, exile, sickness, green mountains, regret, ageing and acceptance.

Likeable, page-turning, and deeply moving, Tsunami Eyes is a tale that will involve you, awaken you, and go a little bit towards helping you to not take those you love for granted.
