Meet Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan
- July 11, 2016
The author of Sarong Party Girls comes to DC Tues., July 12, at 6:30PM
A brilliant and utterly engaging novel about a young woman’s rise in the glitzy, moneyed city of Singapore, where old traditions clash with heady modern materialism. Vividly told in Singlish — colorful Singaporean English with its distinctive cadence and slang — Sarong Party Girls brilliantly captures the unique voice of this young, striving woman caught between worlds. With remarkable vibrancy and empathy, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan brings not only Jazzy, but her city of Singapore, to dazzling, dizzying life.
