Event: Meet-the-Author session with Tash Aw

Select Books is pleased to invite you to a Meet-the-Author session with Tash Aw on Saturday, 13 April 2013, at 4:30pm.

Tash Aw was born in Taipei to Malaysian parents. He grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and moved to England to attend university. 

His first novel, The Harmony Silk Factory, published in 2005, won both the Whitbread Award and the regional Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best First Novel that year, and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. 

His second novel, Map of the Invisible World, set in post-Independence Indonesia and Malaysia, was published in 2009. His fiction has been translated into 23 languages.

Tash's third novel is Five Star Billionaire. In this stunning new novel, Aw charts the journey of migrant Malaysia workers in the new China, counterpointing their adventures with the old life they have left behind in Malaysia. The result is a brilliant examination of the migrations that are shaping the new city experiences all over the world, and their effect on myriad individual lives.
