NYC Book Launch: Tash Aw presents We, the Survivors
In conversation with Chimamanda Adichie
Part of the Immigrant Writing Series
Reception to follow

In We, the Survivors, award-winning and critically acclaimed author Tash Aw presents a compelling depiction of a man’s act of violence, set against the backdrop of Asia in flux. Ah Hock is an ordinary man of simple means—so what brings him to kill a man? This question leads a young, privileged journalist to Ah Hock’s door. While the victim has been mourned and the killer has served time for the crime, Ah Hock's motive remains unclear, even to himself. The unfurling of Ah Hock’s confession forces both the speaker and his listener to reckon with systems of power, race, and class in a place where success is promised to all yet delivered only to its lucky heirs. Joining Aw in conversation is Chimamanda Adichie, author of the award-winning novels Purple Hibiscus, Half of a Yellow Sun, and Americanah.
