Blogpost on Tripfiction: Talking Location with author Ann Bennett – Kanchanaburi and the Death Railway

7th July 2017

#TalkingLocationWith … author Ann Bennett, shares her experience of researching Kanchanaburi and the Death Railway, for her third novel in the Thai-based Bamboo Trilogy – Bamboo Road

“The location for Bamboo Road chose itself. It is the third book in my WWII trilogy based in South East Asia and is set in Kanchanaburi in Thailand. It is the town in which the real Bridge on the River Kwai is located and the headquarters for the building of the Thai-Burma railway. By the time I came to write Bamboo Road, I had already written one novel partly set in and around the town. Bamboo Heart is the story of a prisoner enslaved on the railway.”View from train along tressles - resized
