Philip Blenkinsop: The Cars That Ate Bangkok. White Lotus, Bangkok, 1996. 112 pp. Quarto (8.5 x 11.75 in./21.5 x 30 cm) Numbered edition of 1000. Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Black-and-white reproductions and illustrations.
Combining the collaged, diaristic style of Bill Burke's Mine Fields and I Want To Take Picture with the true fiction voice of William T. Vollman and the brutality of a driving school movie, The Cars that Ate Bangkok presents the most graphic account of Southeast Asian driving accidents imaginable. It is not for the faint-of-heart, nor merely for thrill seekers: Blenkinsop's newspaper clippings, quotes, and observations reveal the attitudes of a culture on a collision course with disaster; his photographs show even more.
