Tinling CHOONG ... FireWife (2007)
CONGRATULATIONS to Tinling Choong on the launch of her début novel, FireWife (Nan A. Talese/Doubleday) on January 23, 2007.
Born and bred in Penang, Malaysia, Choong received a Bachelor of Arts from Wellesley College, and is working towards her Ph.D. in East Asian Languages and Literatures at Yale University. FireWife is her publishing début. “FireWife,” according to the writer, “is a story of plight and hope, escape and desire, offering vignettes in the lives of eight Asian women: a photographer, six women she photographs, and a girl travelling in between lives.” Choong is presently working on a novel, Yuyu and the Banyan Tree, which will be published by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday in early 2008.
FireWife is available at all good bookshops now!
