Tomorn Sookprecha writes, translates and edits books on subjects ranging from love and death to cafe culture and the forgotten decibels of everyday sound. The editor-in-chief of GM magazine, Tomorn also has nearly 30 books on his resume, mostly non-fiction and translations, and he's known to his readers for the ability to pick out the mundane and the overlooked, shaking them, and turning them into thoughtful and romantic reflections.
Among his many translated works, perhaps he's best known for his Thai rendition of Haruki Murakami's books, notably South Of The Border, West Of The Sun, which is perhaps the most popular novel of the Japanese writer among Thai readers.
Tomorn's latest release is his translation of An Edible History Of Humanity, an analysis of food and civilisation written by Tom Standage. Meanwhile, Tomorn has also written a book of essays, Wara Sood Tai (The Last Moments), which ponders on the final thoughts of people facing the spectre of death. And two years ago, he released a book titled Karn Dern Tang Rawang Hoo (A Journey Of The Ears), about the nature and dimension of noise and sound.
