Off-beat PP

Also in today's Phnom Penh Post Weekend is more info on the new book, King Norodom's Head, by author Steven Boswell. A collection of off-beat anecdotes from around Phnom Penh which I hope will encourage more people to uncover little-known stories, both in the capital and beyond, and get those stories into the public domain. There must be similar revelations from Battambang, Siem Reap, Kratie, Kompong Cham, Kampot, Kompong Thom, etc, merely waiting to be uncovered in every corner of the Kingdom. I'm sure Jean Michel-Filippi could fill a mountain of books with his knowledge. I did something much the same when I collected tales for my book, To Cambodia With Love, as I love the idea of the off-beat and unusual nature of intimately personal stories.
