Floating on a Malayan Breeze: US book tour, April 2013

Dear friends, as I enter my last two weeks Book Coverat The Economist Group, am getting increasingly nostalgic. I’ve had a wonderful seven years here, the longest I’ve spent at any institution–so feel like I’m losing a small part of me.

Thankfully, as part of my transition to full-time writing, I’ve got a great trip to the US to look forward to. Am very happy that this book tour has come together, partly because the US remains the most important market for English-language writing. Exciting!

For all of you based in the US, I’d love to see you sometime, perhaps at one of these events. For those based elsewhere, if you have any friends in these cities who might be interested in Malaya or my writing, please do share this page with them. Tell them to come support a Malayan author 🙂

All of these are public events; some require registration–see below for more details.

I’m still not sure if we’ll be selling the book at these events. But you can easily order it via Amazon, both paperback and Kindle versions. If you are coming for one of these events, and want to purchase a book right there, please send me an email at sudhir.vadaketh@gmail.com, and I’ll try to ensure that we have copies available. Thanks.
