Here is a selection of the books that have come in over the summer from local - Singaporean - publishers. Watch out for more on some of these books in the coming weeks.

Iban Journey by Golda Mowe
Out In The Midday Sun: The British in Malaya 1880 - 1960 by Margaret Shennan


Twitter Spot
Each Sunday I make a suggestion of an interesting Twitter account you may like to follow.  This week, Nicholas Skidmore: @ndskidmore.

Nicholas Skidmore is now based in London, but he was previously a lecturer in Western Literature & Film at Tsinghua University, and he is involved with both Pathlight, the journal of new Chinese writing, and Asymptotea journal dedicated to translation. 

Reminder About Blog Spot And Book Club Spot 

Each week I invite the administrator of a relevant and interesting-sounding blog to write a paragraph for The Sunday Post. Do you run a blog you think may be of interest to readers of Asian Books Blog, and which you’d like to see featured here?  If so, please get in touch - details below.

Likewise, I welcome accounts of book clubs. Are you a member of a book club you think may be of interest to readers of Asian Books Blog?  If so, I have the same request as above: please get in touch.

Thanks to anyone who responds.  Assuming there are responses, Blog Spot and Book Club Spot will resume next week.

Calling All Booksellers...
I would love to start a slot in which booksellers recommend between 1 and 3 titles of Asian interest, either new books or backlist, and either fiction, or non-fiction. If you are a bookseller, and you'd be happy to oblige, then, again, please get in touch.
