FireWife by Tinling Choong.

Eric Forbes highlights a new Malaysian author, Tinling Choong.

According to the publisher's website, her first novel, FireWife is about...
...a fictional tale of a fledgling photographer, Nin, who leaves her corporate job in California to photograph women in various places throughout the world. Her journey turns into a search for the truth about women: the women of fire and the women of water. At each stopping place, she uncovers the tale of a woman who has been marginalized by her sexuality. In Taipei, she meets Zimi who leases her forehead as advertising space and wants to donate her eggs to an infertile friend; in Bangkok, she photographs Ut, a fourteen-year-old girl forced into prostitution; in Tokyo, her subject bares her body so that sushi may be served upon her daily to groups of salivating men. Each of their lives echoes a stage in Nin’s own journey of discovering her raw sexual self, her true fire self.
Something to lookout for, indeed.

FireWife is published by Nan A. Talese and will be released 23 January 2007.
