The Dr Siri Paiboun series by Brit ex-pat Colin Cotterill has been joyously received, both for its humour, and its intriguing historical setting, in newly communist 1970s Laos. The books start when 72-year-old Siri is forced to become the country’s chief coroner.

Lead Review

‘Cotterill’s depiction of this exotic, troubled country is fascinating, and his light touch makes Siri, with his humanity and strange dreams, a very appealing character.’ The Guardian.
