An interesting story taking place in poor villages in modern Thailand, about local folklore and rituals, especially a festival where everyone writes wished on slips of paper and sends them off. Not much of a plot as such, and it would have benefited in parts from a more vivid visual description, but lots of humor and interesting, so I recommend it.

It is harder to write much about a short story, especially without spoilers.

I'm pretty sure I read this at one point, I have thsi weird half-vivd memory of reading it while in a bookstore in harvard square or something, but I must have been reading it on my phone. It was not something I could categorize easily and I started to feel like it bogged down a bit in the middle but it was pretty and subtle and unique.
