Yangsze Choo is a fourth generation Malaysian of Chinese descent. Due to a childhood spent in various countries, she can eavesdrop (badly) in several languages. After graduating from Harvard University, she worked in various corporate jobs and had a briefcase before writing her first novel. THE GHOST BRIDE, set in colonial Malaya and the elaborate Chinese world of the afterlife, is about a peculiar historic custom called a spirit marriage, and was published August 2013 by William Morrow in North America and Hot Key in the UK. Her second novel, THE NIGHT TIGER, will be published February 2019 by Flatiron Books and Quercus (UK).
Yangsze loves to eat and read, and often does both at the same time. She lives in California with her husband and children, and several chickens. Yangsze is represented by literary agent Jenny Bent.
