I have been invited to the Ubud Literary Festival in Bali (October 3 – 7). It’s an exciting programme this year, not least because Nick Cave will be there, and I am happy to be part of a festival that celebrates local and international writing in all its forms.
“Great debut. [The] author offers stunning sentences, captivating turns of phrase, and energetic lines – all in his first novel. …When All the Lights Are Stripped Away was easy to like and hard to fault. It is written with remarkable grace and the sure-footed ease of an accomplished writer. …Overall, [it] is a compelling read, encased in a nice cover. …I look forward to [the author’s] next outing with much anticipation.”
I really enjoyed doing this interview on Bookmark, BFM 89.9, Malaysia. Click here to listen to it.

When All the Lights Are Stripped Away, my first novel, has just been published by Marshall Cavendish.
