Thailand literary stuff
I love the article (in Thai) interviewing a National Artist elect for Thai literary of 2012 (B.E. 2555), Makut Oradee. He is a writer and editor of a publishing house. He established and taught literary and librarian courses at certain Thai universities. His opinions on the need to establish National Book Institute and how to improve literary rate among Thai strike my chord. I agree with him. So far, unfortunately, no Thai government agency is interested in this idea.
By the way, congratulations to him. I have enjoyed reading quality books from his publishing house.
