Interview: Tash Aw

Shanghai skylineI interviewed Tash Aw, the author of the new novel “Five Star Billionaire” – set in Shanghai – for the Asian Review of Books.  He spoke to me about the new Asian immigrant experience, the ephemerality of the Chinese dream, and what it means to recall and write the ambitions of the communities he grew up with in Malaysia.
