Short 'n Delicious for Little Hut of Leaping Fishes

by Suzan Abrams in Dublin

In the present issue of New Books, a specialist reading group magazine that features super exclusive author interviews and publishes extracts of featured books, reviewer Linda Leatherbrow gives Glasgow-based Malaysian novelist's Chiew Siah-Tei's first novel, Little Hut of Leaping Fishes, a thumbs-up in her regular Hot off the Press column. Leatherbrow describes Chiew's story as ".... vividly evoked in fresh and exuberant prose..." amongst other things that also includes a never-wavering pace."
I caught this by chance when I purchased the magazine in London recently.
New Books is published in Winchester, England and currently headed by Elsbeth Lindner, its Editor-in-Chief.
The magazine doesn't control a comprehensive website as such - you need to subscribe to issues to be able to read it. For tempting previews and ordering details, please go to New Books.
