Twan Eng Booktour

Another Malaysian author goes stateside to promote a novel.

Now that the American edition of The Gift of Rain is out, Tan Twan Eng is doing the bookstore and media rounds over there, and Rick Simonson of Elliot Bay Bookstore in Seattle gives an account of Twan Eng's first US reading on the Publisher's Weekly website.

Great to see Twan making waves over there. I remember the Elliot Bay bookstore very well from a visit years ago - fantastic bookshop, up there on my list of al time favourites.
And doesn't Twan look smart!
