Saturday 4 May 2019
Jason Erik Lundberg’s Diary of One Who Disappeared has just been published and has already received starred reviews. Meet the author, reflect on the themes that animate him, and get a signed copy of this outstanding novella.
When Lucas Lehrer finds himself a fugitive in Tinhau, he starts encountering an odd series of coincidences. Not only does the envoy of the North American Union discover that his deep-seated desires are coming true, he also befriends a young woman who is not what she seems, and who may not be from our universe at all.
→ ‘A fantastic tale of the possibility of revolution—both personal and political inherent in every moment.’ — Ken Liu
→ ‘A striking new way of seeing Singapore, the USA and the emigrant experience in an age of renewed bigotry and environmental disaster.’ — Ng Yi-Sheng,
