Yangsze Choo is a New York Times bestselling novelist and a fourth generation Malaysian of Chinese descent. Due to a childhood spent in various countries, she can eavesdrop (badly) in several languages. After graduating from Harvard University, she worked in various corporate jobs and had a briefcase before writing her first novel. The Ghost Bride (August 2013 William Morrow/Hot Key UK), set in colonial Malaya and the elaborate Chinese world of the afterlife, is about a peculiar historic custom called a spirit marriage. It is currently in production as a Netflix Original series. Her second novel, The Night Tiger, is set in 1930s colonial Malaya and is about an eleven-year-old Chinese houseboy and a beautiful dancehall girl who must unravel the mystery of a missing finger.
