A NOTEBOOK ABOUT CATS (2011, Tossapol Boonsinsukh, book, A+++++++++++++++)

A NOTEBOOK ABOUT CATS is a Thai book written by Tossapol Boonsinsukh, one of my most favorite filmmakers of all time. This book contains many short stories. His short stories are super-surreal, lovely, sad, and lonely, like his films.

The book costs 100 baht. You can buy it at Candide Books:

One of my most favorite stories in the book is called THE PHOTOCOPYING MACHINE. Here is an excerpt from the book:

"In the office there is a woman who likes to talk to the photocopying machine,
especially after everybody has left.
Once I left the office late.
I saw her talking to the photocopying machine with pleasure.
She likes to hug her knees, resting her head to the machine, and telling many things to the photocopying machine.

And I sat there listening to her.
The office was quiet. Only a few lights were still on.
I fell asleep. She found me and woke me up.
That night both of us helped each other close the office door
and walked to the main street together."

I love this short story as much as I love the song I TALK TO THE WIND by Opus III, which is one of my most favorite songs of all time.
