Book launch and reading. My first work of creative nonfiction, Breakfast in Cambodia, is a mix of CNF and memoir.
At the launch party, I read from the first chapter, ‘Blankslate’, in the courtyard to a rapt circle of sixteen or so curious newcomers into my life. People who, I soon found, could so relate to that chapter. Nodding alongside my reading, knowing as they did exactly the feeling of about-to-pour-monsoon-rain-and-wheredoigo.
A lovely evening.
After that, I hosted a smaller session, letting my guests read select chapters that I felt would be nice, for them. At this spot… which was where the cover shot was taken… See what I did there? But why not. 😉
