REVIEW Sightseeing ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ng WesternizationIn the prizewinning opening story Farangs the young son of a modest beachside motel owner commits the cardinal sin of falling for a pretty tourist and the confrontation that ensues between the native boy and the girl's pompous American boyfriend culminates wondrously amid flying mangoes and Clint Eastwood a pet pig swimming out to sea In Sightseeing the much anticipated holiday of a young man about to leave for college and his loving and fiercely independent mother becomes a different kind of pilgrimage altogether when they are forced to confront the mother's impending blindness The concluding novella Cockfighter is a triumph of storytelling in which a.
