Just came back from a lovely literary evening listening to Kim Thúy speak about everything for her first book, Ru, to the Princess of Monaco to the excitement of winning prizes she didn’t even know existed. I scribbled down notes and sent off a write-up to a literary journal. Fingers crossed that it will be published.
Kim Thúy is a Canadian writer. Ru, a blend of memoir and fiction, won the Governor General’s Award for French language fiction in 2010. It has since been translated into fifteen languages and published in over twenty countries.
