Let the Mountains Sing Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai – Wimbledon Bookfest
The award-winning writer Nguyen Phan Que Mai joins us on her UK tour to launch the first in our series of events in partnership with Merton Libraries.
Best-selling Vietnamese writer Nguyen Phan Que Mai will discuss her unsparing and lyrical coming-of-age novel set in 1970s Vietnam, The Mountains Sing, which is a haunting tale of identity, love and loss with the epic sweep of Min Jin Lee’s Pachinko and the beauty of Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner. Que Mai is visiting London to launch her new book Dust Child which will also be on sale at the event.
Dr Nguyen Phan Que Mai is an award-winning Vietnamese writer and journalist. She is the author of eleven books of poetry, short fiction and non-fiction. Her debut novel and first book in English, The Mountains Sing, is an International Bestseller.
