NOSTITZ, Nick. Patpong: Bangkok’s Twilight Zone.
(London): Westzone Publishing, 2000. First edition. Small quarto. Unpaginated. A photographic journey into Thailand’s sex industry. Not so much “Around the World in 80 Lays,” more a jaw-dropping insight into a round-the-clock business culture where anything is possible and all major cards are accepted. But Nick Nostitz’s visual tour de force is far more than just a voyeur’s wet dream — it’s a portrait of an extraordinary way of life. Because it sees both sides of the story, this book makes a serious contribution to the sexploitation debate. There may be a recherché allure to the hookers turning tricks in go-go bars and the weird, twilight world of the transsexuals but they’re just bit-part players in a greater drama — a shifting world of illusion and reality, captured by the camera. A very good copy in dust jacket.
