|The USA front cover of The Map of Lost Memories|
Prepare yourself for Kim Fay's debut novel, The Map of Lost Memories
It will be out on bookshelves in the USA and in the UK in mid-August.
336 pages, published by Ballantine Books/Random House in the US and by
Hodder & Stoughton in the UK, hence the two book covers I presume.
It's also being translated in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Holland,
Italy and Hungary. And Karyn O'Bryant will be the voice on the
audiobook. I have a vested interest in the author and this book. Kim Fay
was the series editor and a gigantic help to me whilst I was completing
my own To Cambodia With Love. Without her, my book wouldn't have seen
the light of day. Full stop. She was the one who gave me the proverbial
kick up the ass to get it finished and held my hand over the finishing
line. I also read the manuscript of her novel, then called In Yellow
Babylon, way back when and offered up a few observations. But hey, what
do I know. Kim is an exceptional writer and I'm utterly chuffed that she
is bringing out a book, set in the 1920s and in the Cambodian jungle no
less. I would urge absolutely everyone to make sure they buy a copy.
