Mãn by Kim Thúy: A quiet, beautifully expressed tale of food and passion

Cover imageThose lovely people at Shiny New Books have been busy again. A new issue came out on Monday. Lots of reviews, interviews and features by some of my favourite bloggers and a host of other contributors to keep you going for some time, although there are also ‘inbetweenies’ published between issues should you gobble it all up. Sign up for the newsletter and you’ll be kept informed. My own contribution is a review of Kim Thúy’s lovely Mãn, exquisitely translated from the French by Sheila Fischman. This slim, very beautiful novel is a love story, a work of aching nostalgia and a glorious celebration of language. If you want to read more of my review and explore the many other contributions on offer just click here.
