Six years earlier at the age of twenty-one, Jaed Muncharoen Coffin, a half-Thai American male, left New England's privileged Middlebury College to be blessed as a Buddhist monk in his mom's native town of Panomsarakram– hence meeting a domestic commitment. While addressing the ideas of displacement, indigenous identity, and social belonging, An Incantation to Soothe Wild Elephants chronicles his time at the temple that rain period– obtaining alms in the roads in saffron robes; bath time in the canals; learning how to practice meditation in a mountaintop hut; as well as falling for Lek, an attractive Thai lady who concerns represent the life he could have if he stays. Part elbow chair traveling, part coming-of-age story, this launching work exceeds the memoir genre and also introduce a take on new voice in American nonfiction.
