Official Version:

Yangsze Choo is a NYTimes bestselling novelist and 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, (August 2013 William Morrow/Hot Key UK) set in colonial Malaya and the elaborate Chinese world of the afterlife, is about a peculiar historic custom called a spirit marriage. It is currently in production as a Netflix Original series. 

Her second novel, THE NIGHT TIGER, is set in 1930s colonial Malaya and is about an eleven-year-old Chinese houseboy and a beautiful dancehall girl who must unravel the mystery of a missing finger.  THE NIGHT TIGER (February 2019 Flatiron Books and Quercus UK) is Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine’s Book Club Pick for April 2019, as well as Amazon’s Spotlight Pick for Best Book of the Month, February 2019.

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.

  2. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your
    blog. It appears as if some of the written text within your posts are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and
    let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thank you
