Tash Down Under

The writer's life is essentially a solitary occupation but on tour you have to get up and talk about this personal experience in front of people. ... No-one prepares you for touring. It's something most novelists have to learn.
Marc McEvoy catches up with Tash Aw after the Sydney Writers' Festival and asks him, among much else, about where his idea for the book came from, representing Soekarno, how it feels to grow up between East and West.
