If you can get along to Monument Books on Norodom in Phnom Penh at 6pm tomorrow (Saturday 17th) then you can meet author Derrick 'John' Jeffrey, who will be signing copies of his novel, East River New York
, published by Three Pagoda Press. It's a thriller set in Cambodia, Thailand and Hong Kong and the author draws from his own experience of working with the United Nations, particularly with UNTAC from '91-93 as an international observer here in Cambodia. He now spends his time between Bangkok and Phnom Penh and opened up the River View restaurant on Highway 1 in the distant past. It promises to be an entertaining event with a free buffet and wine. Bravo Monument for putting on more of these events in recent months. Unfortunately, I can't make it as I'm returning to Siem Reap for a work's staff party for a couple of nights.
