Duanwad Pimwana

Pimjai Juklin, whose pen name is Duanwad Pimwana, won the S.E.A. Write Award in 2003 for her novel Changsamran after making her name on the local literary circuit as a short-story writer. Born to farmer parents, she attended a vocational school and started off as a journalist at a local newspaper. Pimwana is one of only six women to have won the Thai section of the S.E.A. Write in its thirty-seven-year history. Known for fusing touches of magic realism with social realism, she has penned nine books, including a novella and collections of short stories, poetry, and cross-genre writing, and she is currently working on a political novel. She often draws inspiration from the fishing and farming communities of her native Chonburi, a seaside province on the Thai east coast, where she now lives with her partner, the poet Prakai Pratchaya. Her novel Bright and a collection of short stories, Arid Dreams, both translated by Mui Poopoksakul, were published in 2019.
