Another book to come out of Canada and dealing in part with the Cambodian experience is Madeleine Thien's brand new Dogs at the Perimeter which is out on bookshelves this month, published by McClelland. It's the author's second novel after her first, Certainty, was well received by critics and book fans alike. The heroine of her latest book was a child in Phnom Penh when the city was emptied by the Khmer Rouge and in seeking answers to another person's disappearance, she returns to Southeast Asia in search for her own past. Sounds very intriguing.
